I can appreciate the mood and the murky perspectives from each of these kids, but the film as a whole seems undercooked to me.

It's going for a more authentic feeling than "Dazed & Confused", "The Stoned Age" or "Can't Hardly Wait", and it's not as hard-edged as a "Suburbia", but it feels to me like it could have spent some more time in the concept stages. I like the older character who genially stalks the twins-who-got-away, but that storyline is not clever enough or thought through enough to make an impact. And the relationship between the runner who has transferred in to the new school and is unsure about which cluster of girls to befriend and her boyfriend is a little shallow for my liking. But hey, none of these are damnable offenses. It's just not a movie that I can enthusiastically recommend with a positive rating. Expand

It's your basic mellow drama and offers up nothing new at all. It's interesting at point but is destroyed by horrible acting. I spent more time thinking of catchy ways to trash this film then I did interested in it's lame plot. Overall, its basically a super long and horrible episode of Degrassi mixed with a little 90210.

What struck me about this movie is its push for timelessness.

I don't remember the kids using cell phones or mentioning facebook (unless I missed it) so in a way it does have the nostalgic tone that most of these day-in-the-life-of-teens mosaic films generally have, even if I think this is supposed to be contemporary. We have seen these interlocking stories about teen awakening before, but what this filmmaker is interested in is stripping it down so much that its strive for authenticity somewhat fails when one storyline feels a bit lacking (the college-age kid being creepy with twins he may have shared a moment with in high school).
