Bad acting. Bad, sometimes nonsensical dialogue, boring and predictable plot, and some of the worst writing I've ever witnessed on screen. I wouldn't wish this film on my worst enemy. It's no wonder the director only has 4 movies under her belt. Stay away from this film if you value your time!
First off, you'll have no idea where this movie is going until it's nearly half way over, and then they slap you with the "story" which pretty much makes the movie's plot feel as though it changed 180 degrees. Up until this point, if you're still awake, you'll be bored to death with layers of irrelevant scenes mostly associated with teenage drama.
Oh, and this movie tries, but miserably fails, to be "artsy" in its direction at certain points. This kind of thing might please the college coffee shop crowd, but it doesn't make a good movie. The only way I can see anyone enjoying this movie is if they are the type of person who flat out hates popular, big budget movies, and exclusively enjoys crappy movies for the sake of being "different."
If you feel like wasting your time, then this movie is for you!
