Sensitive and thought provoking
18 October 2007 | by talldrinknycSee all my reviews

Few films handle the difficulties and complexities of teenager-dom as well as this one. Canlder has a unique ability to imbue her characters with depth and sensitivity without being overly sentimental or cliché. Great soundtrack. These characters are real. Lacking the false glamour and pretentious irony-filled self awareness of many teens in recent American films, Canlder's cast instantly brings you back to what it was to be in high school--the good and the not so good. The plot is wonderfully spare in its exposition, and the focus is on letting the characters stand on their own, complete with their imperfections and secrets. An excellent dialog starter for topics that many people simply don't want to go near or don't know how to begin.
