The dynamic between Daniels' vigorous, if self-involved, artist father and Paquin's initially sullen, eventually self-discovering teenager is warmly and believably conveyed, with both thesps doing strongly individualistic work.

It's a movie about dreamers that, for once, doesn't make you feel like a sap for buying into their dreams.
