Most people that watch this movie don't see anything fantastic about it. Most people would say "okay, it was a good movie, but I wouldn't watch it again" or "I have no idea of what happened in this movie because I fell asleep in it".

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this movie but since there was a really nice cast involved, I was quite eager to check it out.

After stabbing an autistic boy, the sixteen year old troubled and pessimist Leland P. Fitzgerald (Ryan Gosling) is sent to a juvenile detention.

The Most Fucked Up Characters In Films (54 movies items)

"Leland. Pearl Madison: "I'm only human, man." Leland Fitzgerald: "It's funny how people only say that after they do something bad. I mean, you never hear someone say, "I'm only human" after they rescue a kid from a burning building." Becky: "I don't want to hurt you." Leland Fitzgerald: "Then don't.""

"Cheadle and Gosling lead a solid cast in this depressing yet not melodramatic film about facing the realities of our modern world."
