A unique method --^--6/10--^--

This is most definitely one of those projects that is not easily summed up in a review but I'll try to at least draw an outline & add some insight. Writer/director Kirsten Sheridan, known for her Oscar nominated writing of In America(2002) and her direction of August Rush(2007), brings this unique idea to film using unconventional methods. It's a story that starts immediately with five teens breaking into a very lavish house on the coast of Dublin,Ireland. Without any back story or character development the viewer is thrust into lives of these wild, unpredictable youths as they go about their night partying & destroying the home they have broken into. A revelation is made early in the film as to just whose house they are in, that & the unexpected visit of another teen are basically the only two major plot developments, that is until the final act when a very sobering event occurs involving one of the kids.

Sheridan chose to do this film in a "live" format with no written script to follow, just some outlines that were thought up in a previous session with the mostly unknown/first time actors as Sheridan watched them interacting with one another. A concept that to me came out sort of like an Irish version of a Larry Clark film due to the manner in which the characters behaved and the raw in your face I don't give a f*** attitude put forth by them. This isn't going to be a film for everyone, some people may hate it, others may see it as an important unveiling of today's Irish youth. Then there is sure to be a good amount of people like me, on the middle of the fence, not quite sure what to make of it. Which is right where the current rating sits. I'll give it a bit more with a 6/10.
