Movie Info

ONLY THE YOUNG follows the story of three teenagers that live in a small desert town in Southern California - a town dominated by foreclosed homes and underpasses, unfilled swimming pools and skate parks. These kids must find things to do in a place that offers nothing - yet in the course of observing their day-to-day lives, we see them discover friendship, first love, heartbreak, and what it means to be young. Tippet and Mims' delicate, ethereal filmmaking and ONLY THE YOUNG's innocent yet rebellious subjects collectively embody the very essence of adolescence. (c) Oscilloscope

Critic Reviews for Only The Young

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (3)

  • An elegant capture of the most elusive story of all: the awkward but nevertheless intense friendship between boys.

    July 23, 2013 | Full Review…
  • In a slim 72 minutes, it heart-tethers us to these teenagers, paying tribute to their unique and private selves while allowing the audience to see its own reflection in them.

    February 22, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Only the Young is an original and handsome work that belies the age of the two young filmmakers behind it.

    February 21, 2013 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • The helmers find consistently invigorating camera angles and a smooth editing scheme, despite what was surely a raft of footage.

  • A charming, aimless film about the aimless. It plays like a nuanced MTV reality show (an oxymoron, perhaps, but you get the idea).

    January 10, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Swollen with sensitivity and sentiment -- a delicate coming-of-age snapshot which locates the unextinguished youth in all of us.
