Quotes:
Dakota Skye:Every superhero has a nemesis. Someone that negates her powers and brings her down amongst the mortals. Someone that makes her no more than human. Sometimes I think I made him up. Like I reached out through the ether, through the haze, and tapped him on the shoulder and said, "Hey, please, come wake me up." Every super hero has a nemesis. Mine is a cute stoner boy named Jonah.See more »

Excellent!, 6 April 2008
Author: kochibo from United States

This was an excellent film! I just saw it at the Phoenix Film Festival. Very realistic and convincing. Her story is completely normal in every other respect besides her ability, and I connected much more with the movie because of it. Her quest felt like something a real person would go through. She's unsure of her future, unsure of her feelings, and everything is just confusing. I don't think it can get more accurate than that when describing adolescence. Some people might judge bits of the content to be inappropriate, but I feel that if it hadn't of been there, I couldn't have taken the characters and plot seriously. I really enjoy the fact the Dakota's superpower both is and is not the focus of the movie. The writers were able to make it stay far from any cheesy superpower movie clichés, which was wonderful. The ability was just a tool to allow her to discover parts of herself. I loved the film, excellent work!
