Let me start by saying that I love this movie. I don't remember how I discovered it but I saw it quite some time ago and I fell in love with it. I love coming of age stories about troubled teens as I can relate to them pretty well having gone though the same kind of this in my own life. Another movie I would suggest if you like this one would be Manic (2001) starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel . Anyhow, this movie is gritty and grabs your attention; there seems to be no dull movements in it to speak of. I just finished watching it tonight and the hour and a half flew by, I wished it was longer. If you like movies that are realistic and troubled teens or even mild juvenile delinquent behavior check this out. That being said the product that was sent to me was a bootleg DVD. I can tell because the shiny side of the DVD is tinted blue as well as when I put it in my DVD player it was recognized as a DVD-R. It was also not at all possible to rip the DVD onto my PC as there was unbreakable copy protection on the disc so I couldn't watch it on my computer which would have been convenient. There was no actual menu to speak of and when the disc starts it kicks right into the movie. The actual quality of the picture is not too bad but be advised that you are not buying an official DVD from the actual film company, you are paying for a bootleg DVD-R with copy protection that will only allow you to watch the DVD on a DVD player, not a PC or any other device like that.
