Despite previous reviews, I felt this movie was really well thought out, I saw this movie when it first came out and it definitely reached me. The subject touches but not meant to be a description of urban life at all. If you see the movie, you will understand what the real issue is. I am going to have to disagree with the dude who posted previously, this movie is geared towards anyone who believes in the issues that plague our youth and our young girls of color. It makes you want to break down the ideals that perpetuate class-ism, the gender binary and other issues that separate people. I hope others see it for what it is. Its reflective of the type of role our society and communities play in a developing child's mind. I think it should be shown to a mixed audience of boys and girls so that they can see the perspective of the other sex. I think it speaks a lot about violence in our schools.
