After the death of his father, Barrett (Robert DiPatri) moves from California to the East. On his first day at his new high school, the shy teen becomes the immediate target of bullies. Troubled loner Ryan (Eion Bailey) quickly comes to his aid, and a friendship blossoms between the two. As Barret gets to know his knew friend, however, it becomes clear that Ryan harbors a bitterness which may have the potential to turn violent. A BETTER PLACE was produced by Kevin Smith and features appearances by several actors who routinely appear in his View Askew films, including Jason Lee and Ethan Suplee.

Well, you know you're in for a low-budget movie experience when one of the opening credits reads "Camera: Ian Dudley" (as it does in this movie). Read morePublished on March 25, 2007 by Connoisseur Rat
This movie could have easily been written off as just another "feel bad for teens" flick, though I believe since only a small portion of the film takes place within school... Read morePublished on October 25, 2006 by Bryan M. MCNEELY
