Let's also remember that we cannot be mad about the characters, because Colfer portrayed them the way they were in his own mind, as any writer would do. The movie seems simple, but when you're telling the story of your life, you don't want to add sex scenes and brutal violence, do you? There is obviously a certain audience that this movie was meant for, which is why it wasn't in theatres and why so many people are bummed out by Carson's snide personality. The "problem" that everyone has with thr film is the fact that it's real. Very breathtakingly real. There was no artificial happy ending, because Chris Colfer doesn't want to bubble wrap life. Carson dies, but he wants the world to know that he died chasing his dreams and living for himself, and that if you have no dreams, you have no purpose. Beautiful work. I can only hope that this isn't the end, because it was a really great start.
3/3.5/5 rounding up to 3.5/5
Pretty average movie with a bunch of cast from all different shows
