Review of the Movie
Though this movie has presented the love story of two individuals in their teen years, as for young people, this may sound like a story of an adolescent rebellion. But, unfortunately, this movie has somehow celebrated the rebel behavior of teenagers and highlighted violence, sexual content, profanity and substance abuse at its level best.
Thus, this has even caused the ratings to drop for certain parts, which has got a rating of C-, C-, D and E. Even the overall rating has dropped down to C- because of the use of such cruel behavior. Even though the characters’ acting is unexceptional, the sound is beautiful, but the conclusion may seem ridiculous. Therefore, this movie may not seem to be worth your time.
