Big Time fun and drama
12 June 2020 | by Kamurai25See all my reviews

Good watch, would watch again, and can recommend.

This is a surprisingly touching "coming of age" story. I'm not a big fan of Pete Davidson, but he does what he does well enough.

I could imagine many people relating to this in several different ways, and what's more is that it feels timeless. Yes, they have cellphones in this, but I could imagine a greaser version of this where he comes by instead of calling, as opposed to calling instead of texting.

The presentation is subtle and near perfect, everyone plays there roles very well.

Its subtle again, but the writing is well nuanced. It really captures the essence of someone who got a broad future, but gets tunnel vision based on his "childish" wants.

There is a lot of depth here if that's what you're looking for, but the minimal version of this is still a good movie.
