ok this is actually the only film that has ever made me cry. i have seen it three times and it never fails or gets boring. the leads are great. you sympathise and fall in love with them as both young actors are equally charming. the film may not have got many prestigious award but it is great and won some mtv awards. ryan gosling is great. if you like this you should also see the united states of leland which is is great in but its an odd film.
