As a teenager, myself I defiantly was interested in seeing this movie. It looked as though it would have portrayed an average teenagers life accurate as opposed to the wholesome "teen flicks" out there. I went to this movie with a friend of mine who is also a teenager and we left the movie theater speechless because the movie literally astounded us. Not only was the movie well edited and shot wonderfully, it was also profoundly truthful. Of course, a few of the party scenes were a little outrageous but it is a movie and some things are going to be unrealistic. As an older viewer they may think this movie is a far cry from what there teenage years were like but in a teenage modern society it is more adult and sexual then one might think. Amber Tambyln as well as the other young actors did a marvelous job portraying their characters and the raw emotion that was felt. I recommend this movie to anyone! PS. the soundtrack was amazing as well!
