★★★★½ review by aar☭n on Letterboxd
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!! 😡

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