Format: DVD
At a nice private High School rich kids are over indulgent. Darren (Oliver Ackland) is a computer robot junkie who lives in the shadow of his cooler step brother Zack (Alex Russell) who thinks very highly of himself. Xandrie (Adelaide Clemens) is a cutie who is "crushing on Darren." She attends a party filled with alcohol and drugs in hopes of spending some time with Darren. She passes out and spends time with everyone but Darren as our tale of innocent love becomes a tale of vengeance.

The film has some good scenes and a good ending. The characters didn't hook you as we got to know the bad guys better than the good guys. Darren was poorly written. The dialouge could have been better and the wanna-be relationship between our two main heroes is shown as a fleeting flashback and isn't well developed. It is drama/ thriller that could have been scripted better.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, male nudity. Deals with drugs and rape.

Format: DVD
Set in an elite Australian private School where to be with the popular `in crowd' is everything and social hierarchies are maintained in visible and hidden ways, `Wasted on the Young' centres on two half brothers, Zack, the leader of the popular set and Darren, one of the social outcasts.
Xandrie, a female schoolmate of Darren's becomes attracted to him and on being invited to one of his half-brother Zack's infamous house-parties tries to find Darren with no success. She is lured into a secluded corner of the house by Zack and his pals, is drugged, assaulted and left for dead in a remote area. Through a text message he find on his phone, Darren realises that Xandrie has been in the house and has gone missing. Not knowing what has happened, he fears the worst and through CCTV footage tries to piece together the evening's events. He realises the consequences of the attack and what he needs to do to get his revenge on his half brother.
The outstanding thing about the film is the teenage world that it portrays - a world of text messages, fast moving IT skills, casual relationships, looking for the `next buzz' and instant gratification. While it contrasts the selfishness of one brother against the genuine-ness of another, one of the striking things is that there are hardly any older adult roles. This portrays the sometimes self-centred world in which some teenagers find themselves.
Oliver Ackland and Alex Russell are powerful in the roles of the two brothers, but Adelaide Clemens as the put upon Xandrie is wonderful, displaying the affections of the school age teenager alongside the vulnerabilities and steeliness growing inside her as a maturing adult.

Format: DVD
Not many films aimed at teens are what you might call thought-provoking or classy. This is both, and surprise surprise, it's not a Hollywood film but one from Australia, who seem to be churning out extremely good, edgy teen movies with remarkable regularity at the moment. To talk about the storyline itself would give much away, but this is a story about revenge, morals, conscience and social isolation at a posh school in Australia. While it is thought-provoking it also manages to include some deft changes in pace, tone and style (being Skins-like at one point, before moving to film noir and then revenge thriller). These changes in style and the interesting and unexpected twists and turns of the plot make the film utterly engaging from beginning to end. Meanwhile the acting is superb throughout (Ok, the lead actor was 30 when the film was made, but you wouldn't know it)and there are some directorial flourishes which are clever and arresting without being intrusive. The 15 certificate is curious - one of the fight scenes if particularly gruesome and realistic, those two elements combined would normally turn this into an 18. It's good that didn't happen here, although the scene in question may turn a few stomachs, making the audience of a teen movie feel uncomfortable at watching violence can never be a bad thing.

Some fine films have been made in Australia, films with a fine sense of narrative, "Breaker Morant", "My Brilliant Career", "The Getting of Wisdom", "The Shiralee", to name a few, but I was NOT impressed with this one ! !
A bunch of rich kids seemingly with no parental control or guidance whatsoever, endless partying with blaring music and pulsing lights, shots of swimmers from underneath - it's like the cameraman can't make up his mind what to film next, jumping from one shot to another with no real sequence or continuity (it's all rather tedious and pretentious) - the story line is something about two brothers falling for the same girl (one brother is the decent nice guy, the other the school loudmouth and bully) - the girl is raped at a party under the influence of drugs and it becomes a sort of "whodunit" with the nice brother seeking to find out who did it.
All-in-all, a rather tiresome, silly movie which left me with the feeling that I had just wasted 100-minutes of my life.
Wasted on the young - it was certainly wasted on me ! ! !
