I don't usually write reviews, so for me to be writing this is saying a lot. I wanted to like this movie so badly as the topics that it covers are very close to my heart. But after watching it, all I can say is... no. The main character, Cara, is unlikeable at best. They try to show her character developing and learning to accept others, but all I can see is a character who continues to stand by as her "friends" make despicable comments like "I'm not going to homecoming on a short bus." I also have a problem with how Cara is portrayed as a saint for... being friends with someone? If all of this wasn't bad enough, the acting is cringeworthy and the writing is just bad. The only reason that I'm not giving this movie 1 star is because I did like their portrayal of Young Life-- finally media that highlights love, acceptance, and forgiveness as the principles of the Christian faith. I also have to give them props for actually hiring actors with Down Syndrome to portray the characters. But other than that... no. Just no. Don't waste your time with this movie.
