“Face2Face” was a film that recently came across my review pile. While the film plays short, it manages to find a way to feel like a real teen drama. It’s a drama, right? I found some moments funny until the big reveal. While this is a coming-of-age story, it almost relishes in its ability to show tortured two teens can be. Over their chats, we get to watch two teens break down in a way that isn’t Hughes-styled.
But, the film also feels staged at points. It’s not bad, but it’s almost Brechtian. Give it a stream or whatever it takes. You’ll want to see this one.
