A very slow and boring drama
17 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story starts off OK.But than the action of the two main characters just becomes so stupid,that you start yelling at the screen. Some of the scenery is quite nice,but it doesn't save the movie from being the low budget movie that it is.

Another thing that bugs me is,you don't really get a feel for the town or its people.It's just the two teen and their families, everyone else,what little there is of other people.Are just vague background noise.

I miss some indication about how old they are suppose to be The girls does a fairly good acting job but,they both come of like they are really quite young,barley in their teens.

********Warning spoilers***********Warning Spoilers********* There's a scene when they are on the run,and are staying in a motel room.The dog start barking madly at the door,cause the sheriff is driving around the parking lot,with a dog whistle.They act all causal about it,like the dogs loud barking is no big deal.Just do a superficial check of the area,until the very last minute. No sign of them worrying about other guests or anything.

Don't be fooled by the other guy,who claims there is sex in the movie.There is none,they are both minors
