I enjoyed this film on many levels. The story really resonates--a decent but unexceptional young man--one who might be described around town as a "good kid"--struggles to come to terms with his small town existence, his loneliness, and his fractured family. There's a lot of humanity in this film, and the characters' stories really resonate. The setting is gritty and realistic, the characters genuine and down to earth, and the tensions between them very authentic. While the ending is predictable,it's a good ending, one which is satisfying without being pat. The actors are well cast and the acting is well done. This is a fine film, highly recommended.
