"Anyone know any movies like it? "
"One of the most fantastic movies about growing up I’ve ever seen "
"Really enjoyed this story of relationships. Acting was fantastic."
"A good movie, both honest and sad. The characters confront big issues, issues of closeness and openness; is it better to open up, or is the prospect too frightening to consider? It's also great to see a young man being shaped by the influential women in his life; the misadventures are endearing, the lessons taught are well worth considering. It's a funny movie with charming, off-kilter dialogue exchanges. It might make you take a look in the mirror, too. Beautiful narration, beautiful images."
