Raw, honest, and full of heart
Here is a passionate filmmaker who gives us a look at the power of a dedicated mentor who looks out for a 'troubled' kid. Looks past all those stereotypes to reveal that what we all really want is connection. And is an homage to the teaching profession and a teacher who refuses to give up when all other adults seem to. A powerful, tense, amazing performance by young Gregory Kasyan as Mills and a frightening, honest portrayal by Lou Diamond Phillips. Best film I've seen all year, and I spend my life studying and teaching film history and filmmaking. A24, pick up this film!!!
