IMDb

Synopsis

A coming-of-age story focusing on young, intelligent, frustrated, misfit kids becoming adults, using the cicada's life cycle as a gentle metaphor for the youngsters' own transformation. A girl is left to care for her older and younger brother as parents travel frequently on business. She meets the new boy in high school. He is closed off and tough, fatherless, his mother lost in the bottle since the tragic loss of her first born son. They are drawn to and repelled from each other throughout the twists of the tale...

Dividing Bar

Low budget movie and it shows. At times it looks amateurish. The performances are actually pretty good and sometimes seem real rather than acted. There's no Hollywood slickness or fancy editing which seems to give it a certain sense of reality. Unfortunately like the people that inhabit this film the movie focuses mainly on the older sister whereas I'd have preferred more attention on Bryan Chafin's character. The film seems to forget that he exists for long stretches of time. He's a neglected child within the film and his character is neglected a little too much by the film.
