There are few times as a movie watcher when you get to be there at the beginning. By the time a directors name gets tossed into the open arena of critics and fans alike, they have already created a handful of theatrical visions and you find yourself scouring Netflix or Blockbuster trying to walk backwards through their cinematic resume. Well, this is one of those few times where you can say you were there when. In a small number of years you can act snobby at parties and brag about how you saw this feature length debut years before anyone knew about the following successes. What's better than having intellectual ammo at the ready to feel superior about? Not much.

Let's talk about the movie first, before we get into the behind the scenes masterminds. Dakota Skye is a superhero tale with a twist. Dakota is a young girl, only medium cute (a line from the movie, which is terribly inaccurate) and she has a secret power. No one can lie to her. Anytime someone distorts the truth around her, their real meaning and honest thoughts appear in front of her like subtitles in a foreign film. You might think this would be a great power to have, but once you start realizing how much people lie and what they really feel about you, life can seem pretty bleak. This is where Jonah comes in, a pleasant tinged stoner who seemingly never tells a lie. Meeting Jonah throws Dakota's world into a spin because there are only two answers, either her powers don't work on him or he really is the last honest person on Earth. Let the teenage confusion and angst begin!

The movie is really centered around the relationship between Dakota and Jonah, which places a large amount of the success on the shoulders of Eileen Boylan (as Dakota) and Ian Nelson (as Jonah). Thankfully both step up to the task.

I saw Dakota Skye last year at the Phoenix Film Festival and have been anxiously awaiting its release on DVD ever since. This is one of those rare movies that you really want to share with your close friends, but you find it impossible to sum up. "A girl who can see through any lie falls in love with boyfriend's best friend..." sounds simple, right? Doesn't come close to doing this movie justice. This film works its way inside and takes you on an emotional journey right along with the characters. Dakota's first line hooked me and something about that character pulled me all the way through to the end. Viewers will want to compare this to Juno, but as much as I enjoyed that film, Dakota Skye has a unique spark beyond comparison. Excellent direction and fantastic acting all around. This movie comes with my highest recommendation!

I first saw this movie thanks to my netflix subscription when I used to get two dvd's and free streaming forever ago. I loved it so much that I came here on amazon to get a copy I never had to return. This movie is one of my favorites. A perfect blend of artsy, dark, and thoughtful. I will watch this movie again many times in my future, as long as the technology to watch it still exists and I have access to it. I know it, not by heart exactly, but by the certain scenes that really impacted me, I am really happy that I purchased it to be in my collection. I really like the music in this movie and I really like the main character. I would recommend this to thoughtful individuals who enjoy looking at the world through a whole different point of view.

This a great little known gem I was lucky enough to come across at the library. This movie doesn't have any well known actors but they are great actors in their own right. Great story which will appeal to older teens and young adults. Dakota has a super power, she is cursed with the ability to see the truth in everything she hears. This is a little known gem at least to me that I am glad I came across.

I was actually surprised by this hidden gem, as it is not often that a teen film can successfully pull off having a "superpower" theme yet still ring as believable. The director and writer are unknowns, and I had not seen the main lead of Eileen Boylan in anything, so I was going in with a fresh slate.

This is a high school film in every way, full of angst, potheads, brainiacs, musicians and one girl with the power to tell when someone is lying - complete with a textual supplement for us to know what the real translations are when someone orates an untruth. Over the course of a year we get to see her find love, have a few of those incredible moments shared with someone special, all while discovering what is most important-in-the-moment kind of theme as high school ends.

The performances were actually spot-on for what was required, and without dissecting the slight faults and several scenes that took too long, everything was put together rather competently. A few laugh out loud moments punctuate a believable sense in what she can see in these false truths from friends; In the end it all makes for a surprising reality check in thinking this could happen. The writing is decent and the Arizona countryside gets showcased nicely.

The special features include a 30 minute standard making-of filled with interviews, behind the scenes but most of all the reasons why the thank-you list in the credits included so many A-list actors and directors. The five minutes of bloopers were mismanaged (did not need to see Eileen get legitimately sick during a take, or other unfunny moments) but it did have one or two funny scenes. The couple two-minute interviews of Ian and Eileen were cut from the documentary and should have been included with it, and the standard indie commentary rounds out the supplements.

A recommendable film for being a first out attempt on most everyone's part, and I hope it gets a fair shake in distribution.
