Newt's movie review

A movie about a rebellious, unhappy, hormonal teenager with a great soundtrack. The premise is fairly common for the teen movie of the time, but it's a little darker and a little uglier and perhaps a little more realistic than the others. And it may actually be one that you want your kids to see just to prove to them they're normal in their own abnormal way.
