Pic is populated by profoundly unrewarding characters doing and saying utterly uninteresting things.
A well-intentioned study of high-school kids coping (and not coping) with the pressures of adolescence, its naturalistic style only makes the more overt dramatic elements look forced and clichéd.
The implacable earnestness laid on by the script, which it took three people to put together, is not relieved by the nonstop songs, from rock-and-roll to Gilbert and Sullivan.
To describe the opening scenes makes them seem routine, and yet they captured my attention with an intensity that I still do not understand.
Good intentions and seriousness aside, it's not much of anything -- not terrible, but not terribly engaging or illuminating either.
A lot of talented people, ranging from Eraserhead's cinematographer (Frederick Elmes) to Choose Me's costume designer (Tracy Tynan), contributed to this muck.
This isn't much more than a conscientious TV-movie drama, with a rather maudlin climax, but the performances are solid...
Somehow balances the silliness of being seventeen with the beauty and the horror of it.
A fresh faced Keanu Reeves stars in this quietly tragic depiction of teenage years, suicide and anger.
