A day in the lives of a group of average teenage high school students. The film follows every character and shows their daily routines. However two of the students plan to do something that the student body won't forget.Written by
The school this was filmed at (Whitaker Middle School, formerly Adams High School in Portland, OR) was torn down in 2007 due to asbestos and black mold. The school had already been shut down when the film was shot. See more »
When John runs from the school (past the dog) check out the concrete pathways. The first time they are pretty much dry. The second time it looks like it has just been raining - they are very wet. See more »
As someone who was in high school during the Columbine shootings, I feel a connection and sensitivity to the events, and to what it was like to be a teenager at that particular time. This was when people first took to obsessing over violence in video games, and song lyrics were being blamed for kids' bad behavior. I feel that this movie only contributes to the paranoid, "look how messed up kids are today" feeling among masses of parents and legislators, and fails to present any actual insight. It is a voyeuristic dramatization of tragic events without the complexity of building fully developed characters, offering hope in the midst of despair, or even taking a fresh look at things we have all seen before.
