Jacob Aaron Estes tells with simplicity, sincerity and compassion coming of age story, which many compare to the «The River's Edge» and «Lord Of The Flies». The Mean Creek but has clearly a more sensitive and "child" approach to the same theme. The perspective of adults and thus lacking the opportunity to observe the Estes and the excellent cast to indulge solely and without exaggeration the p... read more

When i read the storyline, i found it really interesting, although not very original. And most of the movie is really good, but i think the story should have been more developed. The first part of the movie shows a bit of the characters and then their little trip to the river and the development of their plan. But the movie ends just when it starts to get interesting. They should have explored mor... read more

" (Rewatch - DVD purchase) Nine years later, I haven't seen any other film with characters this age that's so morally complex and well-acted. It's short, simple, to-the-point, but razor-sharp at that."

"November 7 I'm glad I found this movie. The story of the film isn't really original, but it's done so well and the kids have good perfomances in this one. The first half is good, but the second half is where it gets intense. "

“"You know, when we graduate high school, and become doctors and lawyers and all that kind of stuff... what do you think it would be like?"

Jacob Aaron Estes spent years working on a screenplay for his debut feature film, and the result is 2004's Mean Creek; a multifaceted, deceptively straightforward spin on the coming-of-age genre. Both harrowing and emotionally devastating, writer-director Estes made the most of the scant $500,000 budget he had at his disposal, using candid writing and an astonishing cast of young unknowns to elevate what could've easily been a cheap retread of similar productions. Mean Creek is unflinching in its ugly examination of morality and the human condition, with a story that spotlights a handful of innocent children marching towards adulthood who are ” read more
