Things are not going to get better.
The troubled teens at the heart of this suspenseful coming-of-age story are not necessarily in a good place at the start of the film.
And that’s before a violent, if seemingly accidental, death fractures the relationships between the survivors, sending each of them down dark paths.
Director Kevin Phillips captures a moment in time — the mid-’90s — then burrows in deep to show how alienation and psychosis form a toxic bond, sending everyone involved hurtling towards a future where they seem to have no … future.
The teen are not alright, but the film is.
