I didn’t realize how lucky I was to have those movies, until they were gone… Fear of comparison sent filmmakers running from the teen dramedy, venturing into the genre only to explore sex romps or insanely wild parties. Well, here, we have a film that dares to plumb the dark depths, and while it may not stand up to the legendary status of the great movies about the high school experience, it is a touching, troubling and charming film.

As many of you know, I think of my books as my friends and feel that every person—no matter their background or station in life—should have a library, whether it consists of one bookshelf or a room full of custom-built cabinetry from floor to ceiling.
