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.
In the school setting of the movie, there are actual students and teachers who attend the high school cast as extras. See more »

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.

There is good acting, there is fine cinematography, and music too. But there is no movie. It's a crazy thing. There is no story. Must have been a writers strike going on and the cast just kept acting and the crew just kept filming, and then the can was full. This movie is good for film school. All the professional capability in the world still can't fill a vacuum. I feel bad for the people who worked on this movie and then they have to show it to friends and family, everybody trying to be polite.
