POSTERS

  • Poster: C-

Review:

You can look at most posters these days and tell immediately whether it's a commercial film, an indie film or something trying to strike out and be different from all around it. This latter category is the minority and this design falls squarely into the indie film style, which lacks imagination or creativity.

  • Trailer: C+

Review:

There are some startling prospects hidden in the details of this trailer, even if it's constructed in a rather mundane style. The critic's plaudits are helpful in assessing whether it's possible the film could be worth your time, but it looks like such a formulaic coming of age drama that the critics will have to adore it to make it a success.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
