Storyline

Welcome to Lytton - Population 350. Home of the World Famous Gold Rush Days... and not much else. Cole Chambers is a young man who has spent his entire life picking up the pieces of his shattered family. He protects his older sister's 6 year-old son from his abusive step father. He manages the family gas station and cares for his brain-damaged mother, whose condition he feels utterly responsible for. Frustrated and trapped, Cole carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. He dreams for something, anything beyond his monotonous life. When Cole gets the opportunity to take a creative writing class at a University in the city, he sees his potential for the first time - that he can get out of small town Lytton and actually make something out of his life... but at what cost? Cole spends increasing amounts of time away from home, falling in love with Serafina, a rich girl from his writing class. Family and friends in Lytton fall apart without Cole's careful guidance. Unable to escape ... Written by Anonymous

Great Drama Film, Semi-Romantic, Way More Drama
31 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is a movie about a guy named Cole who is needed by everyone around him basically. His mother has a disease, he needs to look after her. His sister needs him to be working at the gas station, and his sisters boyfriend is abusive towards Cole's nephew (his Sisters kid who she had with another man), so Cole has to look out for that kid.

Cole wants to go to college which is a 3 hour drive away, and so he does even with all that's holding him back. He meets a girl there... but throughout this whole movie, Cole has a lot of problems he goes through.

I watched this movie about two weeks ago, and I really enjoyed it. Cole had a lot of stuff to overcome... This movie is semi-romantic, but it's a lot more drama. The Netflix description said it was about "a boy who inter-racially dates and the parents don't approve" or something like that, but that was hardly the issue Cole was facing.

Anyway, I would recommend this move to anyone who enjoys Drama films, it's a great one.
