Good early teen movie

I believe this is a good early teen movie. The producer/director did a good job getting in what they could in an hour and 40 minutes. Extending this movie by another 15 minutes could have allowed for some of the supporting characters and aspects of the trajedy in the story to develop a bit more. All in all though, this is good for teens.
