The Adults are Behind the Camera
4 September 2011 | by tony-563See all my reviews

Wonderful exploration not just of its stated subject, but also the deeper issues pertaining to its title - Adults. This close look at sexual relationships between teenagers and people a bit older than them includes a look at the recent Mayor of Portland's relationship with a 17 year old. But surprisingly the film also considers what it means to feel like an adult, and also to take responsibility for those we're mentoring. Most of all we're left feeling the importance of thinking before we act. The film uses the narrative, the medium and also the process to address these questions in a rich way. Wonderful film-making.
