    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

    "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)

    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.

    No inventa nada pero me parece maravillosa. Un "Shotgun Stories" en clave teen sobre una familia white trash que también presenta guiños al "Dazed and Confused" de Linklater. La mejor película que he visto en el festival Americana 2016.
