Just a depressing movie
This is a dark, depressing movie. And if you have seen many movies, you will feel like you have seen this one before. George is this presumably intelligent, lazy, lonely, depressed high school senior, who by chance becomes friends with one of the beautiful people. I found that even my the end of the movie I really didn't care about George or really anyone in the movie.
The adults for the most part allow this student to manipulate them and the system. His parental units are for the most part useless or worse. Also, isn’t the drinking age in New York 21? Not only is there drinking at parties, but two 18 year olds seem to be able to get alcohol anytime they want. It is presumed that all teens drink, smoke, and participate in sexual activity. There is not even a hypocritical religious person in the movie to provide any hope. You get to see George vomit after drinking too much. I do not remember any actual nudity, but there are some crude comments and flashes of a girl in her underwear, as well as another crude situation that I really can’t explain.
