An average movie

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a nice cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, the cast was indeed pretty good (Keira Knightley, Chloë Grace Moretz, Sam Rockwell) and they all played some interesting and rather complex characters. Furthermore, it was dealing with something interesting, with the fact that even if you make some amazing friends during your teenage years, there is no guarantee that, 10 years later, you will still feel the same regarding these friends. So, the concept was really interesting but, unfortunately, it was just rather poorly developed and the story turned out be rather weird and even borderline idiotic. Indeed, when the main character started to struggle with her feeling towards her group of friends and even towards her boyfriend, what did she do? Well, she just disappeared and started to hang out with a group of teenagers…. Seriously, how was that supposed to be an improvement? How was it supposed to help her out? But, it didn’t stop there and the whole thing became even more moronic when Megan decided to sleep over a whole week at this teenager’s house. The problem wasn’t that it was inappropriate, the problem was that it was just so weird as pointed out by Sam Rockwell’s character. And, of course, the fact that Megan fell in love with the father of her new friend didn’t help either. Anyway, to conclude, in spite of its flaws, I really liked these characters and the concept really had some potential but the whole thing really felt like a missed opportunity.
