Coming-of-age story in a small town.Written by
I came away from this film with a warm feeling of nostalgia. A longing for those long summers of youth. In the evocative way of movies like Stand by me I was transported to a time before the realization that all people are flawed and that it's just the human way. The complications of adulthood loom and start to encroach on the childhood idyll. I loved this film. I loved it's slow grace as we moved through the days, bonded with characters over shared memories and grew. The cinematography is not contrived but frames the story in a non intrusive warm hand that allows the viewer to gently travel the story with the characters who develop before us but don't overwhelm. This movie is not for everyone. But it was for me and anyone else who appreciates reminders of our own personal journeys. Loved it...loved it...loved it.
