It's not really original stuff, and there are few genuine surprises, but Painter skillfully layers visual details and off-the-cuff dialogue into a smart, condescension-free piece on small towns and the complicated lives they contain.
The result is a film imbued with the tender awkwardness and poignancy of those first wary explorations--those electric moments that occur in the small space between childhood and newly discovered maturity.
Drifter comes to small town, gets all the ladies hot. But it's not the steamy, literate Picnic, starring William Holden - instead it's the pretentious Steal Me, an artily photographed, puzzlingly acted indie.
Solid performances can't save Melissa Painter's pretentious teen drama Steal Me, which plays like a cross between Dangerous Skin (without the gay sex) and Picnic (without the production values or credible situations).
