Excellent in every department.

By joluisfl
The story was engaging; the actors were right on target; the music score was lovely; the editing was perfect. In other words, it was one of the best movies I have seen in a long, long time....

Very good! Well written, well directed and well acted. Excellent story! Definitely not a movie for children....

Wonderful on all accounts

A tribute to individualism, almost. This outsider, loner, socially awkward nerd has exceptional intellect which gets him in trouble when he uses it to point out hypocrisy. It also gets him the girl,...

ok, but I would not call it a love story

By Laurie from NC
The actors were very good and the move was good but they led your to believe it was a love story. If it was it was an odd love story. I enjoyed the film but was looking for a happy ending, not death...
