Brilliant film, excellent soundtrack! Beautiful insight into teenage discovery, approachs delicate subjects with a realist approach rather than Hollywood, totally refreshing. Plus Leisha Hailey sparkles.

I was really looking forward to watching this film (mostly due to Leisha Hailey), however, I was left somewhat disappointed. The film starts with two teenage girls, best friends. One clearly has feelings for the other, and seems to follow her around like a sick puppy. The other is a messed up girl, a drug abuser and verging alchoholic. The arrival of a gay man who puts things into perspective seems to be a turning point, but this is ruined very quickly. This film is more about the violence and hatred towards the gay/ lesbian community than it is about a teenagers coming of age. Highly disappointing.

A depressing but honest film about a teenage girl in love with her straight and alcoholic best friend. The isn’t a happy-ending type film, but optimistic in its own way and true to the characters. An excellent portrayal of adolescent angst, unrequited love, and the limitations of friendship. I would recomend it.

I don't think that I would have many positive things to say about this film if it wasn't for Leisha Hailey's outstanding performance (Despite her being made to suffer with a terrible, undeserving script). I did question why such an extraordinary actress was thrown into this melodrama, perhaps to promote her band "The Murmurs" and star in bigger projects such as "The L Word"? Either way, the film seriously does not flatter Hailey's brilliance as an actress.
As for most of the rest of the film, I found utterly pointless. There is absolutely no doubt that director Alex Sichel is forcing the "drugs and drink are bad" message onto the audience, unlike more balanced films such as "Thirteen" or "Sweet Sixteen". Perhaps the most accurate portrayal in the film however, is the portrayal of the boyfriend and his friends, all of which are typical of that stereotype.
In summary: Not great, but an O.K (ish) drama, with a star appearance from Leisha Hailey (Well, all of about 10 minutes..)

I thoroughly enjoyed this film. Very emotional and awsome. I'd recommend it to anyone, gay or straight!
