Far more touching, deep, and honest than I expected based on the description above and a few of the reviews below. Maybe boulder_gal watched it while high because it is pretty clear what it is about, summed up eloquently by the quoted line of the author in the group -- "Judgment has a way of creeping into every relationship, even our most intimate...If we're lucky, somewhere along the way, we meet a few people who listen to us without criticism or reproach. We call those people our friends." ...Often these friendships are formed in college, but whatever the context of their creation, such close relationships can become intimately intertwined with our sense of life-meaning in a way that exceeds the mind's ability to understand let alone express. So, when those relationships change as all things do, it can feel like a terrible loss, even leaving some utterly bereft. Everyone must find their own way of making peace with grief and intense feelings of all sorts, as well as the sometimes terrifying but inevitable process of change in general that is life, but some simply find it harder than others, some feel things more deeply than others, some are less prepared than others, and some simply need more support than others. True friends who offer such support are real blessings. In addition to fitting music, this movie was written, cast, acted, directed, and edited more than well enough to convey this beautifully.
After watching this movie, I still have no clue what it’s about.

Spectacular cinematography and acting! As well as great choice of music through the film. However more negatives than positives, the story severely lacked... well just that... a story. It could have been a great introduction to a much more sophisticated movie but definitely not stand on its own. The storyline was so cringeworthy especially when writers forgot the need for a plot to have a decent film. The characters were also quite toxic that showed rather of growing through life successfully through the triumphs, the group somehow survives life in all unhappy, depressing ways and never seem to have grown up from middle school. Only if there was a word people could put in to use that would take it all away... oh wait it’s called maturity. One character however caught my attention and I partially felt his emotion, Alex. Due to the failure of the story, it was impossible to fully connect with the themes and emotions; however, it is clearly seen Alex is hurting the most and his “friends” are making things much worse, especially in a selfish, disgusting way. Easily, Alex can become a great guy, but he has just been in the wrong crowd. People need to get a grip on life and start helping people like Alex on a personal level. A hotline can only do so much for a person. It all boils down to how can you be the prevention. If you are hurting I’d be glad to talk with you - 865-684-6754 If you call, please feel free to leave a detailed voicemail and I will return your call at the next available moment.
