Strong Base, but Missed Opportunities!!
A decent movie that was easy to watch! Acting was over the top with Timothee Chalamet, who reminds me of a young Ezra Miller, who can flat out act even with a mediocre script such as this one! Chalamet hits it out of the ballpark on a nasty curve ball. The script felt like it had a strong base, but missed out on a lot of opportunities in areas it could have explored. All along it felt as though it was barely touching on some of the content such as Chalamet's character Billy who is off his depression drugs, the teacher played by Lily Rabe who had deep under lying problems and it just skirts along that edge, and even Anthony Quintal who plays Sam a student who is gay- who meets another gay student at the drama contest they and comes to Miss Stevens hotel room and has been rejected. Again lots and lots of huge missed opportunities!! I knows you can only fits so much into a movie, but still there was a lot left untouched and not explored. Simply put the excellent acting carries what was given to them, still this movie could have easily been much more than it was!!
