    A powerful film about the sometimes crippling power of love of another. As powerful as it is tragic, this is a movie I would not recommend to the faint of art, but to anyone who appreciates the power of love.

    If you are a stone-hearted person like me, then this is exactly the movie you should watch. Even as a straight male, I found the movie quite heart-arming.

    Never takes off, and much of the time Pool seems lost herself, resorting to clichés, redundancy, and dead-end allegory.

    Boldly goes where Hollywood rarely treads: into the passionate, intense and complex world of girls at the point in their lives when self-discovery is tempered by enormous vulnerability.
