A bittersweet tale

This movie is an appealing addition to the "how-awful-is-high school" genre. The performances of the main characters and the supporting cast are at points compelling, and they carry the story. The plot details are revealed slowly, which helps hold audience interests. I recommend seeing it once. I am not sure it's worth seeing multiple times, however.

The actors in this well directed movie were all excellent. It was told from the teenagers viewpoint and the adults had very little dialog. This movie was one of the best movies of the year and I think it should not be forgotten when oscar nominations are being selected. . You will be so engrossed in the movie that you will not be not even be tempted to look at your watch. GO SEE IT and enjoy!

Just a great movie about the harsh reality of growing up and highschool, popularity and the potential to survive without totally compromising to the cliques in life. Would have liked to have seen a movie like this when I was that age. A definite must see for all young in the school experience.......and everyone else too. Poingnant messages in this one.
