Quotes

[first lines]
The Boy: I always imagined there'd be a time in my life where everything would line up and the universe would reveal its plan to me. What was once confusing and overwhelming would reassemble into something so clear and so bright, there's no way I wouldn't know what to do. And I guess you could say that's what happened.

Maggie Kiley's hangup ....
3 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

There is one thing about this flick that ruined the whole movie for me! Why? Oh, Why? Did Maggie Kiley use so many close-ups of Chris Lowell's face? It's like every 8 minutes --- close-up. Does Ms Kiley have a 'thing' for Lowell's face? Am I the only one to notice this weird obsession from start to finish?

Actually the plot gets difficult to follow because Lowell's face is constantly taking over the story. I get the message - he's young, confused, thinks he's in love, and like most people finding direction and focus in ones life is not easy. This would have been a superb story had Maggie Kiley stuck with the conscience direction of 'the boy'. Instead she plastered his face on screen at every chance. It got on my nerve's!

So to sum up this review - if you want a shallow story floating around a guy's pretty face - this is the flick for you!
