Editorial Reviews

Seventeen-year-old Ivy League freshman Aaron Milton (Kyle Gallner, A Nightmare on Elm Street) gets a different kind of education when he falls for single mother Linda (Laura Allen, Old Dogs), a vivacious former wildchild who has returned to college to straighten out her life. The curriculum gets more challenging when Aaron meets Linda's sarcastic 14-year old daughter, Beth (Brittany Robertson, Scream 4), who quickly develops a crush on him. The math doesn't work in either direction, but the dysfunctional triangle becomes a learning experience for all involved.

Cherry is a brilliantly told story, and it's never predictable or unrealistically cute, as so many movies tend to be. The look of the film, as well as the costumes and locations, are all beautiful and the music is well-chosen. The acting is excellent as well, particularly by Kyle Gallner (Aaron) and Britt Robertson (Beth). I was most impressed with the story itself, and how there is so much going on in terms of conflicts and characters, but it never felt overcrowded; there is a natural, easy flow to the movie. At its core (pit? ...sorry), Cherry is a story about growing up - not so much about the main character losing his virginity, but about him becoming a man in a much more real sense. I think that emotionally, everyone will be able to relate to it in some way. Overall, it's just excellently crafted and worth watching. If you rented it and liked it, be sure to buy the DVD; indie movies as good as this really need and deserve your support.

This movie is about Aaron, a 17-year-old who just went away to college. His parents expect him to be an engineer, but Aaron is drawn (pun intended) to the arts. In an art class, Aaron meets a 30-something student named Linda, and they become fast friends. But Aaron finds himself attracted to her... and Linda's 14-year-old daughter is attracted to him. Along the way, he also has to deal with his oversexed roommate and overprotective mother.

What really carries this film is the wonderful performances by all the actors. The always-impressive Kyle Gallner (who I usually see in horror films) is very likable as Aaron. How is this actor not a star?! However, I was most impressed by Britt Robertson, who plays the 14-year-old (I was shocked to find out she's 21 in real life..she truly did look like a teenager!) Britt's performance is multi-layered and expertly played.

Indy flicks are alive and well and this is a good one to wrap your head around.

Here's the scoop. Aaron is in college, ahead of his time, enrolled in an advanced engineering program. His mom is overbearing and his dad in milquetoast. He really would rather be an artist. He gets involved with and older woman student who has a rough past. Her daughter starts to dig him and there is kind of a cool female student in the wings. It all gets really messy.

As in all good indy films the writing and acting are at the heart. The set-ups might not be too original, and you see fairly early on where these set-ups might lead, but it's still full of surprises. Aaron is younger than his classmates and gets involved with things that are beyond his years. He navigates through the situations as best he can but they are messy and he's lucky he's smart and has a good heart. A lesser person would have been eaten alive. He likes Linda, the older woman. He's too young for her. Her daughter likes him. She's too young for him. Then there's Wes (Esai Morales) who's a cop also in love with Linda. Each character is on the brink of going off the deep end. They stumble and bumble but end up none the worse for wear.

They dot the film with glimpses of his artwork and fill it with a lot of nifty tunes. Enough was spent on production to give it a professional sheen. You like these folks. None of them are bad. They just have issues that are at odds with one another. Aaron is having difficulty with his big engineering project (walking on water) so the viewer really wants to see if he'll nail it. How will the relationships work out. I was satisfied with the way things played out. Everybody wins (or at least doesn't lose) in a way that didn't seem too pat.

It's not perfect, but it would do. It's about Aaron and how he get's into college. Aaron is one of those smart people and he in college at the age of 17. He get's into a top Ivy league school and in a tough engineering program. But, we see him not too interested in it as to in his Art class. This is where he meets Linda and she 30 something years ago. He learns a lot from her and they become friends. Later he finds out that she has a 14 year daughter, Beth.

Beth is very independent and very different from Linda. Beth really gets on Aaron neves. But, he still okay with that and starts to fall for Linda. He then finds out Linda has a BF, West and is so, so about Linda. But, starts to like Beth.

Now, everything starts to fall apart and Aaron is in the middle of everything and he starts to come to age now. He helps out Linda, Beth, and West with their problems and they become a family at the end. Aaron learns more about life and what it has to offer and he is well on his way to get on with his new life.

I felt this movie had a great plot and characters. It seems to be a very low budget movie but all the actors were awesome playing their roles. The acting is really made this movie good. The script was okay, but the actors made it better. There were many great moments and scenes. I do recommend this movie.

I was watching this movie a number of times on Netflix and really thought that it was very underrated!I wanted to own it!! A real well made and much enjoyable film from a real good writer and director. The acting was very good from all of the characters. It takes me back to some of the typical hi-jinx from my college days!! A real high-ho to Britt Robertson who is a real good young actress! I have seen her before in a couple of other recent films and she is quite good. I recommend this movie, It has intellect,great young romance a little animal house fun, as well as some serious coming of age drama and upheaval!! It's not Good will hunting but it is a fun movie with many good and touching moments!!! To somewhat paraphrase from the film"great for "Chicks-or Dicks"!!LOL
