Mitchell still manages to plant a flag on this well-trodden territory by steering more toward drama than comedy, though he scores points on both fronts. Where he exceeds those films are sensual visuals that recapture summertime adolescence in all its vivacity. show more

Though filled with teen cliche, Myth manages to be both charming and dramatic. Character development is fantastic as the cast really brings something fresh to a genre that is usually riddled with dull and over indulgent acting. Even though many of the scenarios are problematic in their believability, much of what these kids (and young adults) go through will resonate with the youth of the 90\'s decade, especially. For a teen film, it manages to tread lightly on the topic of underaged sex, which is a relief for adults who would rather not see a group of 13 and 14 yr olds talking about their escapades. Give this one a chance.
