About the Movie

A young war reenactor makes a friend on the battlefield who helps him use strategy to take on his high school enemy. Driven by newfound confidence, he seduces the friend's fetching older sister and risks the friendship. Reality intervenes when the illness of his ex-addict father forces the anger his irony masks to the surface and he has to decide if staying in a fantasy world is worth the consequences.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The filmmakers ended up with a teen flick of Tinkertoy sensitivity in which the assorted story arcs ... are all setup and no follow-through. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Fresh: The characters talk like smart, unpredictable people, and Kelly Ernswiler is one of a kind. – Michael Atkinson, Village Voice, Aug 27, 2003

Rotten: Without any of the dramatic transitions, we're left with a pileup of scenes, none of them very funny, and a thin, linear plot. – Allison Benedikt, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Surprisingly sweet and smart. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Jun 24, 2010
