Road trip with a conscience
9 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a movie with a slow build - made for teenagers without any gratuitous violence or sex - unusual for that alone. But, add in the fantastic soundtrack and setting and this becomes an indie gem. The audience is assumed to be intelligent, not needing to have every little bit of plot nuance or character trait spelt out to them and as a result, the characters evolve gradually and by the end of the movie we are left feeling just a little bit more positive about human nature and wishing that we could embark on a trip in a beaten up camper ourselves. The universal themes of love, attraction, loss and acceptance are intertwined with the more specific environmental issues, but you never feel preached at - just very chilled out. It would be good to see more movies made at this pace - more art-house than blockbuster but none the worse for that.
