Seventeen-year-old Caroline Wexler (Kat Dennings) is facing a teenager s nightmare: her widowed father has moved them from the big city to a tiny town in the middle of nowhere. When Caroline realises she has nothing in common with the burnout losers in her new school she pursues the one person with who excites her interest - her handsome young teacher, Mr Anderson (Josh Lucas). A bizarre love triangle ensues between Caroline, Mr Anderson and a sweet, but troubled classmate (Reece Thompson). Featuring a hit indie soundtrack in this mash-up of the bizarre and the beautiful, DAYDREAM NATION is a coming-of-age story for the 21st century.

I have to say, this is not your typical 'teen' movie - if you were expecting Mean Girls then you should probably look else where. Yes, the story is set in a high-school environment but the issues covered run much deeper.
This film has the wit of 'Juno', the isolation of 'Thirteen', the obscureness of 'Kaboom', but with its unique thriller-edge. Also, the story line wasn't really predictable, so the last half an hour I was really in suspense.
Altogether, definitely worth a watch! It's a thoughtful movie and nice if you want to escape from your own reality and problems for an hour or two!
After her death, it appears the overly mature Caroline is the prettiest girl in school. She seduces her teacher and a classmate. As time goes on we discover the teacher has the persona of a psychotic character portrayed from his own novel and has developed an unhealthy need to continue his relationship with Caroline.
The movie makes clever use of juxtapositions to create humorous scenes. There are also slow scenes and slightly annoying first person narration. The soundtrack was fairly lame. The climax scene is supposed to be a culmination of the scenes building up upon each other. In an indie, it is not necessarily predictable, but it is at least metaphorically or symbolically part of the movie. This one was not. It was a complete let down and a lack of closure by the writer. Want to watch a clever indie, try "Chumscubber."
I found it rather slow, dull, contrived and with a main lead who fails to captivate or titilate like the idea should. It attempts to be clever and incisive but I would argue it simply isn't. A teen film, with teens, for teens.
