Heartwarming and real

It tells the story of a small town. Of a few wild and good teenagers, of which few of them could not grow up no matter how hard they tried. It is a well written and well acted. It shows the nestled world of these two loyal friends and a girl.

Some would be able to relate much more to this movie., but everyone will like it for the way it looks at the protagonist life. Its got some great shots and a simple but lovely background music. In a way the movie is a little sad, but also paints the beautiful picture of the mad/nice world some youngsters create for themselves, and then loose.

In a way its the tale of a man who had most of what he needed at one point in time and later on none of it. But that's fine.
