For a debut film, H. Macy seems very confident and comfortable, but still rough around the edges. It is a somewhat subversive type of inspirational story that unfortunately delves too much on the self-help side but still packs quite some sobering punches to the gut. It is by all means a good movie (I cannot say the same about the bland soundtrack though).
Nice soundtrack. The scenes with the band are very good and exciting, leaving a cool atmosphere by watching. Cudrup has a good interaction with the other boys, but in the other hand, Selena Gomez s characther is very apatic. IThe end is very touching and unpredictable. William H Macy isnt only a good actor, but also a very sensitive director. 3 stars and half
