Shereen Abuznaid: Excellent movie! Great actors and actresses it was also very emotional especially towards the ending.
Elizabeth Chikumba: The reason I gave this movie such a rating is because, as a psycology student I fully understand the movie and I could explain it it psychologically and relate it to reality. Not too many people liked this movie probably because they could not look deep into the psychological aspect of the movie and see the importance of it.
Meghen Svoboda: I loved this movie. I was engrossed by the plot. This troubled girl is much like myself and the guts she has would take her far if she was in the real world. She's an example to us all not to care what people think, you can be friends with anyone you want. Her entire performance was stunning, I am in shock at the age of this young actress she will go far in my book. Sam Rockwell did an outstanding job. Not only did he fit the character, he gave us something to stare at. :) The realtionship that built between the two was remarkable. This is by far one of my favorite movies now. a beautiful story with an emotional ending. I loved it!
