18 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent movie. Better than the movie Lincoln but not quite as good as the movie Argo. Very realistic concerning school children in their teens trying to grow up too fast while trusting adults at their word. Also in the film was the typical high school power struggle. The theme of the movie is a little too mature for children to watch alone but with an accompanying parent I see no problems. The movie was a definite surprise since I wasn't expecting much. I would call this movie a diamond in the rough. The movie wraps up nicely and during the movie viewer must try to figure out why the children act as they do. I watch hundreds of films each year and this one was a true delight. In addition the scenery was nice and the directors didn't go all out on hiring famous actors and creating elaborate scenery.
