dark teen gambling movie
18 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Desson Orr (Tyler Johnston) and Barry Lipke (Calum Worthy) are gambling in school. Barry gets into a fight with Sam Cartier when the wrestler throws a match. Desson is moving out and his father is selling the house. He gets detention with Colleen Calloway (Julia Maxwell) and brings her to a gambling party hosted by Paul Morrow. Paul threatens Barry who owes him money. The next day, Desson finds Barry in an apparent suicide. Desson tries to find the truth of his death by questioning Benson.

This movie depends heavily on writer/director Simon Davidson. While the writing has some interesting darkness, the directions are unimaginative. This should be a movie of dark intensity but it meanders too much. I like the intentions of a dark gritty movie about teen gambling. It doesn't executes very well.
