Southbounders has captured my heart!
19 January 2006 | by lizwulffSee all my reviews

I am not an outdoorsy type of person. Nor am I particularly interested in nature, hiking or athleticism. But I looked up long enough from old re-runs of Dr. 90210 to catch this quietly beautiful film. It really captures the loneliness and beauty that people tell me exists outdoors. This is a realistic take on young romance and is a fantastic coming of age story. The acting is superb and the soundtrack is perfection. Any under-achieving over-achiever will be drawn into this realistic portrayal of a lost but yet ambitious young woman hoping to find herself. How anyone could sleep in the outdoors for six months is beyond me, but it was fascinating to learn about this aspect of a sub-culture. Southbounders, I think I love you!
