Fate steps in and brings together two high school seniors from opposite sides of the track in this sexy, fun, and energetic story of first love. Nicole (Kirsten Dunst, Bring It On) is the 17-year-old troubled daughter of a wealthy congressman who never met a rule she didn't break. Carlos (hot newcomer Jay Hernandez) is an A-student with big dreams who endures a two-hour bus ride every morning to attend high school in an upscale L.A. neighborhood. Their innocent flirtations quickly develop into passionate love, but Nicole's self-destructive behavior threatens their relationship and puts Carlos' promising future in jeopardy. Will their intense passion keep them together despite the objections of their families, or will Carlos be forced to plan his future ... without Nicole? Surprises lie at every turn in this wildly seductive and critically acclaimed drama.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: The story is not new, but the film gets credit for trying to move away from the genre's cliches. Kirsten Dunst and newcomer Jay Hernandez give believable performances.
There's nothing new in this teen fantasy.
