Never underestimate an over achiever. To his classmates and teachers, high-schooler Ben Manibag (Perry Shen) appears to be the "model" student: a perfectionist and overachiever, destined for nothing less than graduating at the top of his class and then attending a prestigious college. But underneath this persona is a darker side - Ben and his bored high-school buddies lead double lives, flying high in a world of petty crime and material excess in order to ease the pressures of "being perfect." It's a free-wheeling lifestyle that soon takes a downward spiral, leading to an unexpected end. An Official Selection at the Sundance Film Festival, Better Luck Tomorrow is a gripping, edgy and provocative film that rips the tranquil, well-manicured facade off of middle-class suburbia and cultural stereotypes.

But due to the events in Better Luck Tomorrow I would justify saying that this is a Prequel to Fast and Furious 3 Tokyo Drift but more so as a background of who Han was and why he's in Tokyo.
This is clearly an Asian American film, focusing on the real-life struggles faced by teens in high school. Of course, it's not a documentary, so some of the events are "kicked up a notch or four" to make for an interesting, edgy film. I thought the actors each did a great job, but I am not sure the casting was expert - I had a hard time believing each of them were young enough to be in high school. Cho is good, as we might expect, being the most experienced actor, but Parry Shen is the real star, and does well as a convincing lead.
