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!! 😡

"Hey, Jack! This movie is King!"

(This is actually a fantastic debut, and Felix Thompson should be proud)
★★★★½ review by Nik on Letterboxd
One of the best coming-of-age films I've seen since Mud. Everything about this was so real and relatable. The cinematography was so perfect in every way. Felix Thompson really directed the hell out of this and I can't wait to see his upcoming projects. The characters were all very well written and great performances by all. Shane, the bully, may have been one of the best antagonists from any film I've seen this year. Cannot recommend this enough.
