Falling Awake isn't completely soporific, but it hardly inspires or enlightens.

Puts good intentions and appealing performances into the balance against cliches of dead-end neighborhoods and rebellious (but sensitive) youth.

One-named Cuban-born director Agustin's unrewarding middlebrow drama flaunts its street cred dubiously.
