User Reviews

9.5 stars perfect casting, great pathos and humor
28 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

No matter your age, if Norman doesn't make you remember your own high school years it's time to pull out that old yearbook.

Mine were painful, though less so than his, and I laughed and cried with him along his journey from self disgust and boyhood to self respect and manhood. Never an easy task, Norman takes tough subjects and presents them with a strange combination of charm, dignity and sarcasm. Somehow it all works, and works beautifully. I'm not sure I've ever seen a more moving but tasteful, no cheap tricks, handling of love and loss. I highly recommend it to kids of all ages (17 and older of course given the R rating). And I'll be watching for more from this extremely talented creative team.

Also, I'll be seeing this one again...
