I got to see a preview showing at Cineworld. I’m glad I did.
This is a foul-mouthed, rebellious, and slow-moving film about growing up.
Stevie (sunburn) has a typical relationship with his brother. His relationship with his mother is about to change. And all because he’s changing from a child into a teen.
He falls into hanging out at the skate shop and picking up skate boarding. Thankfully his progression in skating over the summer seems pretty realistic. No falling off a couple of times and then taking on the half pipe in an end of summer competition.
The skaters are typical teens. Trying to establish themselves, experiment, and fit in.
A really good movie about relationships, growing up, and getting along.
It is shot in a square format and veers towards realistic/arty in style. Nonetheless, a film that may remind you of your youth or give you something to reflect on if you’re one of those folks moaning ‘O tempora, o mores’.
