Yes, it's about young people~ but young enough that i'm curious about what's changed and what's stayed the same in this late, Mood-Swept generation; what they think about; how they feel about the world they're inheriting. This story is told from the eyes of an Out-of-place, Precocious high school co-ed who moves from the City to Hicktown, USA, "where there's more incest than in an Atom Egoyan movie". She's a Serious type; In her Cultural Moment, Motherless, No one to Love, who is questioning her values, the meaning of Life and Death, society, and the social Games We Play. Here, she plays mostly with drug seeking, disillusioned teenagers. She engages in a promiscuous affair with Josh Lucas' character, her teacher, come home to roost and zap some reality into the quotidian travails of Disaffected Youth.
There's a story arc regarding a Serial Murder Mystery.
Whilst at first we are guided on an almost nostalgic, plot less, soporific remembrance of feeling alone in a group of people, the all too real consequences of some bad choices made by good people whips the dénouement into a Frenzied affair.
A reviewer compared the Voice to a 'Juno- by David Lynch'...or a Shinier Donnie Darko.
Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose...
A refreshingly Un-Obnoxious soundtrack, with a nice Cover of CSN&Y's 'expecting to fly'.
