Blitz captures the melancholy, the rage, the wackiness and drama of adolescence, and he gets winning performances out of his young stars. show more
Catapulted by an endearing lead performance by Reece Daniel Thompson as a stuttering high-school student, Rocket Science transcends the predictable high-school yarn and arcs into usually unexplored domains of self-discovery and personal growth in a coming-of-age film. show more
I suspect a lot of high school students will recognize elements of real life in the movie, and that the movie will build a following. It may gross as little as "Welcome to the Dollhouse" or as much as "Clueless," but whichever it does, it's in the same league. show more
One of the best unseen movies! Staged in Jersey, it captures some of the drama that happens in most high schools, but really has that NJ feel to it. The characters play a pivotal role in capturing the audience and making you feel insecure, nervous and sick....just like high school all over again! Enjoy it!
Re: Dow2114...Popcorn and coke...
When an excellent film is released and is offered as an "exclusive" in a very limited number of theaters, it severely inconviences the public as well as hurts the monetary return to the producers. Such is the case with "Rocket Science." In the Baltimore area, it is available in just one theater. That one theater is in a very urban location with all of the negatives associated with older urban settings. I think that the public deserves to be able to make choices, rather than the "take it or leave it" attitude that this situation creates.
