Storyline

In 1983, Oliver Nicholas, at thirteen, is well-poised to enter the precocious teenage world of first-sex, vodka and possible-love in New York City when he is traumatized by the stroke of his housekeeper (and only true maternal figure), a sixty-five-year-old Chilean woman named Aida. What was supposed to be an exhilarating and somewhat fearful rite of passage - diving into the exciting, fast-paced world of first experiences - quickly becomes skewed by an incomprehensible depression, and a house of interior horrors. Surrounded by women - his untraditional, Spanish, photographer mother (more interested in the role of confidante than mother) his sister, a comedic, door-slamming tormentor, marked by her parent's divorce; and Aida, his silver-haired emotional focal point on the verge of death in Lenox Hill Hospital - Oliver struggles to maintain his role as "man of the house" and his sanity. With his best friends, Valerio, a chain-smoking, nunchucking, grandiose artist; and Nick, a cynical,... Written by SC

A mix of - what?
11 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you decide to watch this odd movie and you get quite lost in trying to keep track of exactly what is going on in little tiny Oliver Nicholas mind don't feel alone!

First little Oliver Nicholas is suppose to be like 13 or 14 years old in this story but the child actor, Spencer List, appears to be more like 9 or 10 years old. Plus I had to read-up on this story after watching the movie to realize little Oliver had an imaginary friend!!! I completely missed this in the story! There is a whole scene where little Oliver is talking via telephone about this imaginary friend and little Oliver letting it die. I found that whole scene completely confusing! The only saving grace in that scene is when the younger brother Valerio gives his older bullying brother a taste of his own medicine. The rest of the movie is just a bunch of 5th Ave kids running wild and little Oliver coming to terms over his very ill nanny and little Oliver's sister being very bitchy.

And I know the setting is NYC in the 1980's but I seriously doubt an airline would allow a 13 year old to travel alone all the way to South America.

I found the move soulless and misguided in it's topic.
