I had the pleasure of watching this film last night. It was a nice down-to-earth depiction of adolescence, awakening and responsibilities. However, it left me wanting more. The story was nice and real but at the same time baiting and not going where all the indicators pointed. The ending also felt anti-climactic. No real purpose to tie the knot of the film and its story.
Even though I can find plot holes and such I still enjoyed it. Great acting from Lily Loveless and the rest of the cast.The visual pictures where slow and establishing mixed with fast montages giving the film a nice tempo with mixed effect.
