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.
[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.

I thought it would be an intriguing film with the well defined actors and i will be glued to the screen as the the plot was supposed to find the killer.Addison(Ansel Elgort) never did.till the climax.The Director(Sacha Gervasi) completely wasted all the talents in this cinema.that's really a waste of time watching this stupid irrelevant screenplay which never went with the plot.i could agree at a certain point of screen logic.but this fails all the way.just skip it.save your time.The Director(Sacha Gervasi) seems to be from stone age.Either he should get into a film school and learn basics or he should at least learn a few film making skills from watching movies.
