Amusing high school comedy
13 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

This is a story of the relationships between Liam, a teen genius, Claire, his smothering mother / homeschool teacher / best friend infinity, and Anastasia, the girl of his desire. While at a high school to write his high school equivalency exams, he spies Anastasia, and deliberately fails in order to force his mother to let him attend public school.

Raised in a social bubble, Liam has trouble navigating school and taking advantage of opportunities with Anastasia. Meanwhile, Claire tries to keep Liam from drifting away by teaching him how to be a rebellious teen.

The characters are well-written, if somewhat over-the-top. One oddity is that the director uses a 1990s vibe, even if the teens busily text each other, while friendless Liam has not attempted to find online friends either.
