Movie Review: WASTED ON THE YOUNG
They say that youth is wasted on the young, but this movie was NOT wasted on me! I didn't know much about it going in, but this sensational little Aussie film is a riveting eye-opener to the concepts of love and power in today's youth. Everything relevant in the world of kids' today—the way they communicate, that notion of always being in contact with each other, but not really having any true emotional contact at all—is poured into the movie as a tense match between innocence and guilt is played out in a high school setting. One thing I loved was the complete absence of any adults whatsoever in this movie. These kids are the entire world of this film. This movie gets a solid 8 out of 10 from me!
