News & Interviews for Daydream Nation
Critic Reviews for Daydream Nation
Goldbach fills the story with too many distractions, but Dennings, known for "Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist," is feline and fun.
"Daydream Nation" rolls elements of "Juno," "American Beauty," "Donnie Darko" and "Twin Peaks" into a potent blunt.
A fitfully engaging effort that is most successful as a performance piece for actors Kat Dennings and Reece Thompson.
It's a film about teen angst that's too caught up in its characters' state of mind to see its way through to the other side.
Audience Reviews for Daydream Nation
Everything you don't want to happen to youre daughter or if you a teacher in this film,, why do we always blame the teacher. 3 stars 12-2-12
I've noticed a trend with movies these days that deal with teenage girls with much older men, and that's to make the teenage girl seem mature beyond her years and "in control". Meanwhile, reducing the older man to a sniveling, whiny, pathetic little boy is supposed to make it less creepy?? Wrong, doesn't make it less creepy. This subject can be done well, like American Beauty, but this one misses the mark by a landslide. Go watch (or re-watch) American Beauty instead!
Hmmm... It was okay. Something about it didn't quite grab me, but it was an interesting film and I can't find any real flaw with it.
Cast are all fine. Kat Dennings in particular is good here as a rebellious and manipulative teen.
Worth a watch, but not something I would watch again in a hurry.
