Good Enough
3 March 2019 | by pennyelenabooksSee all my reviews

River's Edge is a dark movie. It showcases the lives of outcast teenagers, as they try to figure out what life is, what love is and what friendship is. Although it was unnecessary graphic at some point, and the events that happened were too much, the movie had a simple but strong plot. The performances, actually, were the key to success for this movie. All the actors and actresses of the movie were exceptional and helped the movie a lot. The ending, finally, suited the story overall. So, six out of ten.
