Authentic Independent Romance Movie
3 October 2016 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

Finally a refreshing romance movie that isn't a knockoff of predictable, over the top romance comedy movies. This crisp and underplayed teen romance ironic genre has the photographic technique and ambiance of an independent movie more focused on the performance and storyline than on the corny mainstream manners that underlie most teen romantic comedies.

Be Somebody has the teen pop star much more down to earth and seemingly sincere in the depiction of a boy whose life is not his own. The unknown teen artist on the other hand has a pretty every girl face that isn't a gorgeous model. There is a nice seriousness to this movie with overtones of humor in the irony between star and artist.

This movie one of the most appealing in its sincerity and natural performances to come along in a romance movie in years.
