I had long ago written off Gregg Araki as a filmmaker of limited emotional scope, as someone who tried vainly to shock and provoke and create garish, tacky films like Nowhere to rattle the mainstream. The soundtracks were pretty good though. And he could always pull in a unique set of up-and-comers (although, most of them didnโ€™t really establish great careers. A lot of them have found work as su... read more

" Date: 2/11/2019 Viewed: Amazon Prime (Rental) Fist Viewing Note: I watched this movie for the first time and I end up liking it a lot. I remember avoiding this movie for years because of the movie's themes (pedophilia), but they never cross the line with it.

I love how they were able to make the story and characters feel so realistic because this movie almost feels like it is based on a true story de"
