Flawed but worthwhile
20 August 2012 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Yes, there are inconsistencies as other User Reviewers pointed it out, nevertheless the movie holds your attention and the main characters are well drawn. The complexities of the main female character are particularly interesting and touching. The first impression that she is a slovenly drug dependent slut is gradually replaced with the realization that she is capable of tender feelings and caring.

If near recent life in a school and life in rural Alabama is depicted accurately in this film, then we have all something to worry about. Actually I found this possibility (perhaps probability) more depressing than the tragic story line which is depressing enough.
