I thought this film was well done! I can see why it's compared to Juno and Donnie Darko but it is definitely unique all on its own. I saw it this morning and haven't been able to stop thinking about it. Reece Thompson, Kat Dennings, and Josh Lucas were all great! It's a shame it's not very popular. Then again, I'm a big fan of independent films with unique story lines as opposed to feature films that seem so repetitive.

By the way, the soundtrack is AMAZING! Cannot wait to buy it!

This indy film takes a look at a small town, its inhabitants and how they/we float through life not facing the reality of things.

Here's the scoop. Caroline (Kat Dennings) is from the big city. She's bright, savvy and is having a difficult time adjusting to this town where an industrial fire raging just off its borders, the kids imbibe copious amounts of alcohol and there is a serial killer on the loose. So what does she do? She puts the moves on her English teacher and dates a nice, local schoolmate to cover her tracks. Said teacher dates the school's female Phys Ed teacher to cover his. Things don't go very well.

This has a lot of cool things happening. Lights, sparklers and fireworks are nearly ubiquitous. They appear, in one form or another, in many scenes. Then there's the ominous plume of smoke, off in the distance, issuing from the burning factory. It lends a sense of dread to the proceedings. I also like how certain scenes are repeated using different characters. I thought it was a nice touch. How about the characters. Thurston (Reece Thompson) is a good hearted, smart enough guy who gets too high too often. He likes Caroline. She IS witty and her sharp tongue might be the slap he needs to wake him up from the mind-numbing existence of small time life. How about Barry Anderson (Josh Lucas) the English teacher. What a knucklehead. He has to know, in the back of his mind, that sleeping with a student can only end badly. Then to think she's the love of his life?! Grow up!

Like all good indy flicks this is all writing and acting. The cast is more than decent and it's peppered with some really nifty tunes as well. It's directed and shot professionally. I didn't see the bones showing. So, if you're prone toward this sort of thing this is a good outing.

I actually very much enjoyed the movie. It wasn't quirky just to be quirky, and I greatly appreciate that. It wasn't pseudo-profound and it was actually pretty deep. I really liked watching as the characters grew. I'd recommend this movie to anyone who likes Charlie Bartlett or Juno. It's biting yet touching at the same time.

This was a dreamy little movie that I'd heard was becoming a cult classic. And since I love those kinds of movies I had to check it out. I would start by emphasizing that it is not a normal teen film in any way and if you're looking for a chick flick you're going to be disappointed. But for me this movie came out of nowhere -- well, Canada, I guess -- and shocked me by dealing with feelings and emotions through very surreal and sometimes brilliant film-making. The plot is messy, very messy, but that feels like part of the point: things are left dangling, weird events keep piling up, and all the while the movie is kept alive by superb acting by Kat Dennings and the wickedly clever double-edged dialogue. In some ways the story-telling is more like a book than a movie. I read one review that compared it to a Murakami novel and I thought that was a pretty apt comparison. Not for everyone, but definitely for me.

There is a vague attempt at a secondary storyline with the mystery of what's going on in their town to try to deflect from the very typical story of a creepy male teacher who has an inappropriate relationship with a "sexy," more mature, female student who, as expected, goes hard to initiate a sexual relationship. As I've stated in a few of my other reviews - I watch female coming-of-age films critically. Women's studies majors - this film is probably not worth the watch if you're looking for a fresh take on female agency. Stick it with the other stacks of films and stories where girls gain access to being women through sex and are early portrayed as the initiators of relationships with men who want to justify having sex with teenage children.

Dennings' performance in this is wonderful. However, the film sometimes romanticizes the hardships of life in rural America. Also, there are some side plotlines that don't contribute meaningfully to the overall story. Overall, fun and entertaining, but probably not appropriate for younger viewers.

I thought this was an excellent film -- great story and great starring role by Kat. However, I'm a huge Kat Dennings fan and a fan of this genre -- so I loved this movie but I can see others nay not love it as much as I! Would definitely recommend this movie!

Kat Dennings is one of the best actresses working right now. Her comedic timing is genius! And when she's being serious and dramatic, she does it so good that you feel like you are right there in her head feeling those emotions too. She's great in 2 Broke Girls as well. If you liked her in movies such as House Bunny, Nick & Nora's Infinite Playlist, 40 Year Old Virgin, or Charlie Bartlett... GET THIS!
