| A great coming of age story.
The only thing wrong with this movie, is that it isn't as good as Best Of Youth, but nobody expects anything to be, especially in under 3 hours. This is the story of a boy, plunged into adulthood, in many ways metaphorically. Few stories can capture the turmoil of a child dealing with adulthood the way this one does.

The camera work is great. The audience is led seamlessly through characters' emotions. The soundtrack is pulled from our psyche. This has all the makings of a classic. Few real life frustrations are overlooked. Friendship, social class, race, religion, crime, family, love, sex, are all parts of growing up, and all play a role in this movie.

These writers' and this director have succeeded again.
