Spin it old school
24 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Milkshake is a period piece that takes the viewer to the 1990s. The setting is a high school where the main character Jolie Jolson, who is the great-great-grandson of the famed singer Al Jolson is an odyssey of self discover. He has that high school angst where he balances independence while staying between the lines establishes by the authority figures in his life. Jolie balances life, relationship, and sex as he deals with the present and plans for an unforeseen future. This movie brings out a nostalgic view of the simpler days of the 90s, when a less connected world made for more leeway on learning from youthful indiscretions. I saw this film as part of the Atlanta Film Festival
