A well acted, well written movie with a killer soundtrack. I really was expecting some east coast teen angst and was really surprised. Most teen movies play in the heightened reality of edgy teens from various social circles battling out armed by a writing staff full of quips. We love to imagine that we were that clever as 16 year olds. This film seemed to focus more on the honest intensity and our of control emotions that make teenagerdom so awfully wonderful.
