4. I need to do whatever he did because it's really working for him

5. It's written and directed by Jacob Aaron Estes.

6. He is known for The Details starring Tobey Maguire and will be directing the upcoming Rings sequel.

7. It's looking like a Scott Mechlowicz double feature right now.

"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

A good movie

“I thought it was pretty good. It reminded me of "Bully" since both movies deal with the revenge on a bully but I have to say that "Bully" was superior. This time, the directing was very good and the children gave impressive perfomances. The only weak point was the story which a little too short for me and not as intense as "Bully". However, in spite of its flaws, it remains a good movie and it is definitely worth a look.” read more

"Watched 28.5 ---------- Kertoo nuorista, jotka kostoksi leikittelevät kiusaajan kustannuksella, mutta homma päätyykin aika huonosti. Ei herätä mitään maailmaa mullistavia tunteita, mutta silti jollain tasolla koskettaa ja pistää mietityttämään."

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 psyche and the reactions of young characters who suddenly faced with the end of their innocence. Though the film reaches its peak early enough continuing somewhat embarrassed by the titles of the fee at any time without losing its authenticity.
