Watched this on recommendation from someone who loved it, but I had a hard time going past the sound of this movie. There is an apparent plan by the director to stir up a sense of excitement through the intense way the main characters talk to each other about everyday 50's teenager stuff, that just reminded me a lot of the annoying parts of Juno.
Later in the movie there are also a couple of long, ASMR-like monologues by older characters which felt like they weren't giving me the feeling they were supposed to, but were rather creeping me out in the way most ASMR does.
I respect the effort, as I liked the subject matter and the way it was filmed, and if you're already committed to the movie it is definitely worth staying to the end, but the highlighting of the actors' voices (as well as the too-serious and naive dialogue at times) made it far less enjoyable for me than it could have been.
