A raw, touching, unfiltered look at the teenage angst that Hollywood usually turns into brain-dead comedy.

Billy's resilience, though, is nothing short of amazing. Not to mention part of growing up.

What you ultimately take from the film is the awareness that this smart, self-aware, uncensored kid has been playing to a camera in his own head since well before Venditti came along.

Billy the Kid, a movie that's as interesting as it is dewy-eyed, may be the rare snapshot of an adolescent 'outcast' who is really the guy made for fame, with a built-in radar for how to present himself in front of the camera.

Nobody ever said growing up a small-town geek was easy. I know from personal experience, and so does Billy Price, the subject of director Jennifer Venditti's affecting documentary Billy the Kid.

I don't imagine any adult could watch Billy the Kid without sharp pangs of recognition; everyone who passes through the crucible of teenage-ness feels at least momentarily as awkward as Billy.

I have seen more than 25 documentaries this year, and after a while they all start to run together, both structurally and thematically. Billy the Kid is utterly original in both respects.

Billy the Kid is a heartbreaking vérité documentary by Jennifer Venditti about a misfit Maine teenager -- a film that makes you think about (and question) what fitting in really entails.
