18-year-old Addison Schacht, a Jewish high-school senior in Washington D.C., responds to the essay question, "What are your best and worst qualities?". He explains he has only bad qualities, as illustrated by the events of his senior year. They include collecting offensive jokes; dealing drugs to his classmates; and insulting teachers, fellow students, and his girlfriend's mother. But his classmate is killed, and he begins to investigate the death.

Quotes

[first lines]
Addison Schacht: [as home movie plays] My mother died six months ago today. At the hospital, they told us she'd had an aneurysm. There was nothing I could do for her. I guess I've gotten pretty good at pretending to be okay.

Not as good as some people say, not as bad.
16 June 2018 | by buzzellwilliamSee all my reviews

Okay, I agree with many of the criticisms posted on here, the plot is thin and unimaginative. But the acting is good- Ansel Eghorn is okay, the others are good. The cinematography is good, even the music is good if somewhat forgettable. A good Saturday afternoon watch, especially if you can pick it up free at the local library.
