ONLY THE YOUNG follows the story of three teenagers that live in a small desert town in Southern California – a town dominated by foreclosed homes and underpasses, unfilled swimming pools and skate parks. These kids must find things to do in a place that offers nothing – yet in the course of observing their day-to-day lives, we see them discover friendship, first love, heartbreak, and what it means to be young. Tippet and Mims’ delicate, ethereal filmmaking and ONLY THE YOUNG’s innocent yet rebellious subjects collectively embody the very essence of adolescence.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A sketchbook of a documentary filled with adolescent bodies groping, lurching and skateboarding toward burgeoning adulthood.
Fresh: The helmers find consistently invigorating camera angles and a smooth editing scheme, despite what was surely a raft of footage.
Rotten: Co-directors Jason Tippet and Elizabeth Mims show genuine affection for their subjects but, despite some evocative visuals, never zero in on an involving structure or narrative.
Fresh: A lush beauty of a documentary whose youth face the danger of un-coolness ...
Boring movie boring Jesus freak teenagers waste of time
Beautifully shot nostalgia
This is a really well shot and constructed documentary. The characters are engaging, the landscapes beautifully captured, and the soundtrack could be one of the best doc soundtracks ever. Great job directing/editing!
This may be the best movie ever made. I cried through most of it because my best friend will also be moving away soon so I understood it.
