    Low-key, sometimes charming coming-of-age comedy.

    A good Indie film I was fortunate to see on the big screen in Vancouver, B.C. Set in a fairly remote Canadian town, 1950s, the American Cousin is a cool older teenage male who comes to town, setting younger female teen hearts aflutter (while getting himself in typical small-scale adolescent trouble).

    Not bad but dull in places. Poor acting and no dramatic tension. Beautiful Okanagan scenery though. This was obviously somene's very personal project.

    A big award winner in Canada, this film has little style or interest from the directorial point of view, but is well written, well crafted, and exceptionally well acted. Compelling, but familiar.

    Alright- so this is a nostalgic little movie, naturally, being set in the late 1950's. I dig that it's also set in Canada. It was interesting to see a glimpse of what Canadian life may have been like back in the day. In B.C., it looks like it was pretty boring- haha. But they had their fun. That's what I like most about this movie- all of the fun they seem to have. It's so convincing that it makes me feel like I am having just as much fun. It was a little cheesy at times, and the fact that the main character totally has a crush on her American cousin is something I found... well, interesting. It wasn't really a problem, though, because throughout the entire movie it is maintained as a very innocent thing. This is just a nice, light-hearted and fun movie. <br/> <br/>P.S. I enjoyed Margaret Langrick's performance. It had such a youthful quality to it. It was very fresh and free-spirited!
