On the eve of their high school graduation, two academic superstars and best friends realize they should have worked less and played more. Determined not to fall short of their peers, the girls try to cram four years of fun into one night.
An uptight and conservative woman, working on tenure as a literacy professor at a large urban university, finds herself strangely attracted to a free-spirited, liberal woman who works at a local carnival that comes to town.
I thought this was a very well done movie. This is what an indie movie should be( see prior reviews) I think I've only seen Ellen Page in a few things. Realized she was the girl from Super ( really liked her in that) She is a really good diverse actor. I think the acting was good by all, only not excellent one was the attorney. And he was still decent. Spoiler; When Lizzy tells Mercy about what happened really felt it was real. very good acting. The story is a depressing one but I thought it was a good film.
