    Young fiesty horny kid in a small midwest town full of nothing but inbreds and broken dreams and underage drinking? This movie was made for me.

    I'm a sucker for bike riding shots with lens flares

  • ★★★½ review by MaryAnn on Letterboxd

    I work with extremely nice and funny teenage girls on a weekly basis, and I know they aren't a full representation or sample of their age, but man, working with them makes me so sensitive to movies with shithead teenagers! Just! Do! The! Right! Thing! I was about to break through the TV and give those bullies a piece of my mind!! 😡

    Brilliant film, stunning soundtrack. This one's a keeper.

  • ★★★½ review by Brandon Hart on Letterboxd

    "Hey, Jack! This movie is King!"

    - Brandon Hart's first (and final) draft of this review, shortly before jumping into a pool with his ankle tied to a cinder block

    (This is actually a fantastic debut, and Felix Thompson should be proud)
