Cast & Credits
This movie was really good! I'm not gonna write a really long paragraph explaining how this was somewhat a perfect coming to age movie, because honestly I think it's worth giving it a watch, a kinda see it and judge for yourself thing.
The acting was not on point! But, it wasn't horrible or anything like that either! The story line is really cliché and simple! So don't get your hopes up for any kind of hidden message or deep meaning! I gave the movie a 10/10 because I'm a sucker for cliché movies and if you are as well, then I highly recommend!
The actors were decent, and I thought pretty realistic how they would have acted if this had been real life. None of this is high dollar Hollywood stuff, but it isn't a high school film project either. There are very minor sound and picture quality issues, (I.E. this isn't 4K with Dolby surround sound) but that doesn't really distract from the story. There are some little things that date this movie like the cell phones, and magazines, but ignore that and focus on the story itself. Just remember when this was filmed to put the last couple items into perspective.
For some reason the Youtube version of this movie was age restricted. There were a couple of what I would call MAYBE PG-13 scenes in this. There was no nudity, no swearing, no blood and gore, or even any serious violence. Not sure what that age restriction was about, but it isn't a dirty movie by any means. There is much worse stuff at 8 PM on broadcast TV. The English captions of the version I watched were very well written, and easy to understand which isn't always the case in foreign films of this type.
I say give this a shot if you are on the fence. Looking at the statistics, most people gave this between a 7 and 8. I think that is a pretty fair assessment.
