This review is from: Cherry (DVD)
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.
