This is an example of what is so beautiful and intimate about no-budget filmmaking. No studio anywhere would have given the light of day for a 16-year-old to make this film - but that's what's capable of happening online. A high school movie as effective as this? Told by someone still there? The movie takes me back to that emotional worldview; the sincerity and nostalgia from Jamison is commendable.
I think, without a doubt, this is Jamison's best work to date. The direction is so sensitive and intimate (at times recalling Gus Van Sant's Elephant), the lead characters are so well-written and feel completely realistic, and the ensemble is fantastic.
