Critic Reviews for Wasted on the Young
Wasted on the Young's pulsating soundtrack, immediate direction by first time filmmaker Lucas ... and Leanne Cole's hectic editing all lend the film a vibrancy that is sorely lacking in a lot of cinema these days.
No excerpt available.
A scorching ultra modern morality fable that uses school grounds, party houses and internet connections as stomping grounds for social allegory.
Audience Reviews for Wasted on the Young
This was an interesting story with some great young actors. It was a very dark story and the ending was great.
A morality tale in re to the morality of choices that people make in re to a young & naïve girl being gang raped at a party by some rich - preppy boys. Even though the film is poorly edited & the flashback scenes are hard to follow this is still worth seeing. It's a mid-tier level teen drama with a deeper meaning about morality & personal responsibility. The film also depicts very well the detachment that many young people have in re to violence in society & how self centered many teens are. The plot could have taken place in the US. This is not a great film but serves its purpose. I still have some issues with the ending being left open to interpretation but it is what it is. There were aspects of the plot that reminded me a lot of some films from the 90's such as Cruel Intentions (1999), & School Ties. There were other aspects that reminded me a lot of Irreversible & its edgy material & also the In Crowd (2000).
'Wasted on the Young'. A party gone wrong with devastating consequences. Destructive, tense, and two wonderful lead performances.
