Claire Paxton is a rebellious and independent late teen, her outlook on life which is driven largely by the fact that her single mother is a self absorbed alcoholic. Claire is repeating some of her senior year classes at Toronto's Arthur Meighen High School in order to graduate, which she decides to do during the school year rather than waste her precious summer doing it in summer school. She has little motivation to attend classes or graduate. Her school year is affected largely by her encounters with two males with who she ends up spending much of her time. The first is Jim, the thirty-something front man for the funk band, the ElastoCitizens, with who she embarks on a sexual relationship. The second is Henry, a ninth grade student who she used to babysit.

Tatiana must mean "gold" in some language
18 August 2019 | by gdumpSee all my reviews

I was going to skip this movie because it sounded like yet another in a long stream of lame teen movies, but then I saw that Tatiana Maslany was the lead. Based on her stunning performances in Orphan Black, I decided to give it a chance and I'm glad I did.

Both Maslany and Spencer Van Wyck play roles much younger than their actual ages, but they are both completely believable. Their performances raise this otherwise common story into something much better.
