    Even when tragedy strikes early on, the revelation is just another "growing up is hard" dot on the grid. show more

    It's an extremely effective context for this particular story, told with no nostalgia, lots of humor, and a cast of really watchable characters. They are "types," for sure, but the types are given room to breathe. It's a sensitive and interesting film. show more
