Thornton is brilliant at capturing the isolation that marks these kids' lives and inviting us into their bubble, a place where we come to see tenderness behind rough exteriors and understand the prejudices they face.
One of the many feats director Thornton pulls off in this beautifully observed, thoughtful picture is that the leads spend the entire movie without uttering a word to each other. Sometimes, words are just redundant.
