I was blown away by the writing, the acting, the depth and the sheer beauty of this film. A tale about youth, friendship and love, very sweet and tender, bitter and tragic at the same time. Also funny as hell, sometimes painfully so. Watching this film is like reading a very good novel. An unrecognized masterpiece. The ending is a little cheap though which costs it one star.
This film gets compared to the graduate a lot I noticed as I read up on the film. Such a trite comparison that does an injustice to both films. This film is about First love yes and yes there is an older woman. But this film is more about the budding bromance that can start between two young men on the cusp of adulthood who must deal with major issues to sustain that friendship. Sweet in many ways. Ends too abruptly
