Storyline

Summer in a small southern town: Grace wants to go to college, but her feckless mom has poisoned that well (no student loans because mom has welshed on credit cards in Grace's name). Dorian wants to escape from his snobbish adoptive parents. They team up to sell marijuana - she hopes for enough to go to college. Both investigate family secretes, and things get complicated when Dorian falls for her, Grace falls for someone else, and Grace's 15-year-old sister behaves badly. Can Dorian find independence and Grace get to college. And what constitutes a family, anyway? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Dorian Spitz: I knew we should go into business together... I can see it on your face, you know. I can see it in your eyes. You need to escape your world just as much as I do.
Grace: Except that you're trying to escape down, and I'm trying to escape up.
Dorian Spitz: No. There's no up or down, man. There's just free and trapped.

2nd viewing
1 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i watched this movie a second time recently and it is even more entertaining and compelling on second seeing!

there isn't much i can say here that hasn't been covered by the previous reviews on this page. praise is praise and i cannot praise this movie nor reveal anything the other reviews haven't competently revealed to the reader.

my suggestion is to just watch this story as it is made for people who enjoy great characterization, intelligent dialog, and a story you will naturally find yourself wrapped up into!

it's a shame good cinema gets ignored so in this country!
