In my opinion, there can never be enough movies made about the conflicting years of adolescence, a period where those cute and adorable children we intend to raise into perfect and responsible adults all of a sudden start rebelling, biting the very hands that feed them. They turn into strangers, who question everything, alienating the very adults who nurtured them, causing pain and misunderstandings that tragically often outlast this brief unsettling period in our lives. The strength of this movie is the exceptional visuals, great soundtrack, excellent casting and a script adapted to the "nowness" of media influence - altogether a great film by the new promising director, Caryn Waechter.
