Storyline

A contemporary, ensemble drama telling the complex tale of six high school students whose lives are interwoven with situations that so many of today's youth are faced with. The story takes place during a normal school day. At precisely 2:37 a tragedy will occur, affecting the lives of a group of students and their teachers. As the story unfolds, the individual stories of the six teenagers are revealed, each with its own explosive significance. An unwanted pregnancy unravels a terrible, dark secret; all is not as it appears for the seemingly confident school football hero; an outcast must deal with everyday taunts from his peers; a beautiful young girl battles an eating disorder; a stellar student constantly struggles to win his parents' approval; while another uses drugs to escape from his own demons.

Well done
30 October 2006 | by paulmartin-2See all my reviews

This was quite an accomplishment by the young director. Being a big fan of Gus van Sant's Elephant, I found the derivation in this film a bit distracting. If you haven't seen Elephant, that won't bother you.

I found the interspersed black and white 'talking heads' interviews artificial and contrived and the film would have benefited if they had been edited out. The ending was more graphic (violent) than needed and the whodunit aspect was also a little unnecessary.

These criticisms aside, this was a remarkable effort by the young director and his credit at the end was very moving. The film was beautifully photographed, and the hand-held digital camera was used to great effect. The tree scenes were nicely done. The actors generally performed quite well. Though I like Gary Sweet, the film would have benefited by using an unknown, in keeping with the authentic look of the film.

Definitely better than average film, and the director has great potential.
