Newt's movie review

A subtle and softspoken coming-of-age story that everyone should see more than once.

Ripley's movie review

I love the chemistry between the boys, the way they talk, the way they act. It feels real. All four do a good job but River and Wil are particularly great, as is Keifer. The plot itself is very simple but it's the conversations and friendships that make this one a winner. Definitely worth watching.
