THE PLOT THUS FAR
A smart teenage girl comes of age in a small town with her self-centered parents who had her when they were teenagers.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
Sixteen-year-old Lucy is a tomboy. She gets on well with her father, but is frequently separated from him for months on end when he goes to work in Canada. Her relationship with her mother is easy-going and she takes care of most things around the house. She tunes into her sexuality and her not so ‘stable’ family dynamics. She develops a relationship with her best friend Kenny and starts to realize that her parents’ marriage is not as solid as she had previously imagined. She notices that her father’s extended stays away from the family are not typical, and that her mother does not pine for her father as much as she herself does.
Kenny, a product of divorced parents looks forward to a relationship that will last but is very pragmatic which pretty much stops him from going for things he really wants. Lucy, having parents who were unprepared to be parents, has to overcompensate for her parent’s irresponsibility. However, as any teenager who goes through self-discovery, she eventually started exploring her sexuality and romantic relationships unguided. And as any teenager who goes through bouts of angst and anger, she also started unraveling.
The Blu-Ray comes with a behind-the-scenes featurette and a trailer. The A/V Quality is pretty strong with a 1080p transfer and DTS-HD 5.1 master audio track. It’s not expansive, but it works for a dramedy. A really amazingly cast dramedy. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.
