This was a very insightful movie, as far as the tensions that might come between old friends, and the hardships that come with growing up. The plot is a little slow moving, but then, so is life. It may seem like the story goes nowhere, but really there's a very profound ending, even though you won't spot it if you're looking for a movie with all the cliché storyline signs: Villain, some horribly horrible task befalling the main character, and at the end everyone saves the day. It's not an action movie, and it's not about superheros~ It's about life, and so the movie moves and looks and feels the way *real* life does.
