As a high school Junior enrolled in as many AP and honors courses as I can fit into a 7 period schedule struggling to find a spot into a university to have a successful, this movie is accurate; although, it is also dramaticized like many other films today. Many of my fellow students who are intelligent and successful oftentimes have trouble with communication and interpersonal skills, and some of their parents even have them take classes on learning how to interact with others. Our generation has come to a point where society pushes the need for perfection up our throats for so long we forget that it their and hurting many people's mental and physical condition. This movie draws attention to these issues in a lighthearted way that remains relevant. I recommend watching this just to gain an understanding of the stress, pressure, and hard work many high school students must do in order to gain "success".
