Storyline

A quirky, coming-of-age dramedy about Scout, a rebellious, slightly bad-ass fifteen-year-old girl from the wrong side of the tracks who convinces a wealthy suicidal mental patient to go on a road trip with her across West Texas to track down her little sister who's been taken by the father who abandoned them. At its heart this is a story about family and how two unlikely misfits come together to create their own family.

Worth Watching
20 August 2017 | by yorkhouse-1See all my reviews

I would have given this 6 stars, but felt I needed to rate it higher than that, in order to make up for two ridiculously low votes this film received. I am glad I watched this film because the subject matter is serious, yet it doesn't drag us through the seriousness of the situation - - how two "throw away" kids in a dysfunctional family, in a dysfunctional universe, have learned to cope against all odds.

I enjoyed watching the writer/actress India. She has a strong screen presence and I will look for more from her in the future. Her character, Scout, is brave and clever. And even though so many people in her life have betrayed her and let her down, she still has the discernment to be able to trust someone who is emotionally handicapped, but with good reason.

I enjoyed seeing Scout and Sam connect, in a series of scenes that showed the progression of trust and care between the two of them. And I appreciated that friendship was the core of their connection. To have one friend in this life who truly cares about you and whom you can truly trust to look out for your well being -- well, that trumps just about anything the world can throw at you.

In ABOUT SCOUT, a serious subject has been handled with enough truth to make it believable, enough heart to make it endearing, and enough hope to make it inspirational. Yep -- definitely worth watching.
