skip the second

13 year old Jesse is excited when his mother buys him an old camera. He is growing obsessed with sex. He reads in a book about being a true artist. He spies on his beautiful older neighbor girl Amy George. Then she ends up staying with his family.

This is a striped down indie. It is slow but it is engaging. The movie does need to start with his obsession with Amy sooner. Instead, the movie starts with two other girls. Maybe, the second girl should be cut out of the movie. The first scene is good shock and awe. Quite frankly, the first girl is given little screen time and serves well as the explosive first gut punch. After that, it should be all Amy George and nobody else. As for the slow quiet style, it's an artistic choice. Some people will get bored but I survived it. The more disquieting aspect is the subject matter. There are some very dangerous material being handled with kid gloves. It's compelling and also very disturbing in its matter of fact way.
