I can honestly say that this is my favorite now because I relate to it so much.
I think that anyone that suffers from social anxiety/awkwardness, lack of social awareness, depression, has gone through a recent personal growth, rebellious phase, or relationship troubles should probably watch this film. I also honestly think that females will relate to this more... and to be frank, females that have experience being an outcast.
I personally think this film helps the viewer to relate to a character that suffers from being out of place and naive through a difficult journey of starting over and finding an inner strength and independence.
I related to this film so much and anyone that doesn't... well to be frank... is probably a preppy spoiled brat that had a life that just came easy to them, or is just a heartless bastard, or defensive about an insecurity their in denial about.
I know that was an emphatic statement about the film, but it was a very touching film, and I think the "darkness" in it kind of reflects the fury of outcasts in a very relate able way. I think it also may teach women to not mother their men so much either.
So many themes in the movie and messages that are so powerful. I love this movie! Anybody that doesn't take anything from this movie is very narrow minded and shallow.
