Very Good Movie

I really enjoyed this movie, yes pretty much everyone in it is screwed up but it's also very realistic. Their depiction of bored boys in Vermont in the 1980s is dead on. What happens after is very interesting with the East Village, CBGBs and the relationships and how they progress. I recommend this movie and had no problem "figuring out" who was adopted etc. Then again, I like movies that don't spoon feed everything.

I'm suppose to write 10 lines of text but don't want to include any spoilers. All the actors did a great job, especially Ethan Hawke and I love seeing Julianne Nicholson again in a movie. She is such a natural actress. I wasn't big on the actress who played the rich New York mother, however.

Yet another movie about troubled American teenagers. 4/10

Review: I'm in two minds about this movie, because it starts off well and the witty script was quite intriguing but once the pregnancy element came into play, it just became a right mess. The acting was great from the whole cast, especially Ethan Hawke (Les), who plays the teenagers father and Emile Hirsch (Johnny) who is a homeless punk but they all seem to wonder through life with any structure or morals. I didn't know who was adopted or not after a while and the whole "selling of babies" subject was a bit weird. You can't really tell that it's an 80's backdrop because there isn't any relevant scenes to that period. Also Eliza (Hailee Seinfeld), seemed to be getting off with everyone, so it wasn't surprising when she became pregnant. The main character, Jude (Asa Butterfeld) was stuck in the middle of all of the drama, suffering with severe father and son issues which started when he was a child. So basically it's a coming of age movie about teenagers growing up without any guidance from there parents, which is quite messy at times but still worth a watch. Watchable!

Round-Up: This movie was directed by Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, who have brought you Girl Most Likely, which I didn't really enjoy, the Extra Man, the Nanny Diaries and American Splendor with Paul Giamatti. This is definitely one of those movies which would have been much better if it was made simpler. It just seemed like the directors were introducing too many elements at once, without finishing the one that they had just introduced. With so many movies about teenagers growing up in America nowadays, like Boyhood, which also starred Ethan Hawke, this is not one of the best in that genre but I have seen worse.

I recommend this movie to people who are into their drama/music/comedies starring Ethan Hawke, Julianne Nicholson, Hailee Steinfeld, Nadia Alexander, Emily Mortimer, Emile Hirsch, Asa Butterfield and Avan Jogia. 4/10

huffing and puffing

Greetings again from the darkness. Sex, Drugs, and Rock 'n Roll – not just a bumper sticker, but also frequent and fun movie topics. Throw in 1980's New York City, some excruciatingly dysfunctional parenting, and the coming-of-age struggles of three youngsters, and you have the latest from co-writers and co-directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini (the real life couple behind American Splendor, 2003).

Based on the novel from Eleanor Henderson, it's a nostalgic trip with little of the positive connotations usually associated with that term. The surprisingly deep cast features Ethan Hawke and Julianne Nicholson (August: Osage County, 2013) as parents to son Jude played by Asa Butterfield (Hugo, 2011). Emily Mortimer plays Hawke's new girlfriend and mother to Eliza played by Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit, 2010). Avan Jogia plays Jude's best friend Teddy, and Emile Hirsch is Teddy's big brother Johnny. It's an unusually high number of flawed characters who come together in a story that features some familiar coming-of-age moments, yet still manages to keep our interest.

The story centers on Jude as he comes to terms with finding out he's adopted, works to overcome his less than stellar parents, and spends an inordinate amount of time finding new ways to experiment with drugs. One night changes everything as it leads to a tragic end for one character and pregnancy for Eliza. Ms. Steinfeld is extraordinary as Eliza and really makes an impressive step from child actress to young adult. Julianne Nicholson is also a standout, and Ethan Hawke provides some offbeat comic relief.

So many elements of 1980's New York are included, and no effort is made to add any touches of glamour. The Tompkins Square park riots also play a role, if only briefly as the key characters realize life is just not so simple … a consistent theme for both kids and parents. The fragility of life is always an interesting topic, and the filmmakers bring this to light through some characters that we feel like we know – and wish we could help.
