This Film, a Wallflower, is Not!
Exquisitely written, cast, and acted film which, over the course of one high school year, follows the various interactions amongst a group of individually very different but closely bonded friends, the newest to the group is our introverted protagonist who we increasingly learn has been long tormented by a dark but not immediately clear event from his childhood involving his deceased aunt, the true drama of which (? . . . our little secret?) is tastefully underdone. The screenplay, editing, dialog, and especially the fine acting make it all quite real and poignant. A fine film which rises to that rarely achieved gold standard of an entertaining and well crafted story-telling which, in the end, lifts one?s spirit.
