First of all, let me say I won't give spoilers, but it's not that hard to predict so don't expect much of a surprise, and it is not doing what it tries to do very well.
I watched this because I like the concept. Shows and films that do this can be interesting and take it different directions, which this succeeds at doing. I could not find much in the reviews to help me know what I'd think, so I"m giving this for those who are having trouble deciding like I did. Overall, I have to say it has its few gems, but it has too many flaws.
For the good parts... First, the acting is good at many points, particularly the main role. It is convincing enough. It portrays the immaturity and what it comes from in what they want to hide and ignore. Second, the development of the story works for the most part at showing the struggle of being mature under all of the influence and peer pressure. Though I would say it is missing a few things, in general, it works.
For the negatives... First, if you are one who cares a lot, there are many small flaws throughout the film. For the most part, it is due to them using the same shots in multiple days where smaller parts of it don't fit. Second, the writing that is there is at least decent, but it is lacking too much. Some parts of this that could have been much shorter only showed the repetition in the first half of the film. The latter repeats of it should have had more to it. What is there works for the most part, but it should have had much more. Third, the last part of the film does not quite work. The last line in particular does not fit because of how it treats a particular character as the driving force when they are possibly the smallest part of the story. Fourth, and most important to me, the theme is ultimately a mess. One side of it works, another does not, and together they create a mess. One talks about the importance of your affect. The other speaks of ignoring your faults to put focus on your good features. This bothers me because if you have a focus on others, you should not need to focus on your strengths because your focus is not on you...thus a paradox. Is your focus on others or yourself? Both does not work.
This is why I was disappointed. Some things were really good, and some things could have been so much better, but the weaknesses and flaws it had took away too much from the positives. It tried to be a more mature young adult flick, but it fell a little short.
