A very realistic and at times funny portrayal of a love-hate relationship between a teenage son and his ill-equipped, suburban mother.

This movies gives an interesting look into the world of someone with anixety. Watching the relationship of the mother son and then the tragic ending keeps the watcher engaged and wanting more. I think this film was made perfect for showing someone with anxiety.

Glad I finally got around to watching this one. Too bad the sound is a bit damaged here but it ...Read more

I am conservative and from the old school where people did not express the liberties they do today regarding disrespect for elders, great profanity and open sexuality. Based on my background and experiences, the film touched home and for me, not too entertaining but was heart wrenching. ...Read more

I saw this wonderful narrative features years ago at a Film Society of Lincoln Center series in New York, and am delighted to discover here on Kanopy. This is a perfect example of innovative story-telling and filmmaking, with stunning performances by a beautiful young cast. I recommend it ...Read more
