This made me reminisce my highschool picture day!  This fun coming of age film hits some right chords with how youth is depicted, in all their restlessness and unconventional ways. I was kinda amused with how Henry is doted upon by his parents especially the mother,  and nonetheless,  their characters were weirdly funny. And boy, did i yell "whoa" with the fact Henry's growing pot right in his home, quite queer! No doubt about Maslany as Claire, she was amazing  in her portrayal of the character. In fact, her performance gained recognition from award giving bodies like Hamptons International Film Festival and Whistler Film Festival, to name a few. This first feature by Melville sure deserves attention plus, it features  the music of The Elastocitizens. I'd recommend this for teeners/ young adults to watch.
