Confusing drama that will give you feels

Youth in Oregon is a great movie if you are awake at 3 a.m. on a friday night on the verge of severe exhaustion, which coincidentally enough, is exactly the case for me. The slow moving film is packed with emotional cues and attempts to draw the viewer into the story with a mostly relatable storyline. Although it is an emotional rollercoaster, it is exceedingly hard to follow the turn of events (or maybe it's because I am so tired). As well, the ending was very disappointing and did not resolve any loose plot threads. This movie is absolutely perfect if you are just into it for the feels, and would be a great candidate for a family movie night.
