This Movie Is Great, Original, Dead On Look At Teenage Years

"A movie for people who want to see something strange and unique and different. An art house teen flick. One that has elements of old Jimmy Dean movies and new David Lynch movies.
A lot of the times when I get dvds off of Netflix, I am just amazed at how little risks are being taken in independent cinema these days. Bringing Rain is at least one movie I have seen in last few years that is it's own beast. The acting, directing, and writing is all raw-- but the talent is there in spades all around. Yes, it is very low budget, but if you go into this movie with an open mind, it is extremely rewarding. Adrian Grenier is almost unrecognizably great in this movie. Paz de la Huerta, as a coked out delusional movie star lover, is captivating. The supporting players-- Ryan Donowho, Alexis Dziena, Merritt Wever-- have all shown in both this movie, and their projects after, that they are some of the most talented young actors around. In twenty years I think people will look at this movie the same way people do now at movies like "The Outsiders" in terms of just the sheer amount of young talent on the screen. Noah Buschel, the director and writer, from what I understand was all of 23 when he directed this and I look forward to seeing what he does next. Belladonna Productions did L.I.E. They are kind of a throwback indie production company, keeping it somewhat real in the day and age of Little Miss Sunshine. Although they did do Transamerica after Bringing Rain. At any rate, if you love indies that really are indies-- check out Bringing Rain. It's great."
