"It's 4 a.m... do you know where your kids are?
"Based on a true story. Naive teenagers plot to murder one of their own, who has been too much of a bully to them.
I'd like to clear up some misconceptions about this movie
It seems that the reviews of this movie are rather bleak because people
say that the director focused too much on sex and that this was not a
realistic picture for teens. I watched the movie, and read the book,
and I have another reference source- my mother was a juror for the
court case State of Florida Vs. Ali Willis and Donny Semenec. She was
sequestered for over a month and was told every piece of information
about these two teenagers and their friends.
This sex/drug filled movie is a spot-on represenation of these kid's
sad life. They had no future, no regrets, didn't go to school and yes,
they had sex with each other a lot. From what my mother says, if you
were to make a movie about them accurately, it would have to be close
to 75% sex. The bully was bi-sexual and would force his best friend to
have sex with him after he had raped his girlfriend. These kids were
also not poor white trash, as their parents were very wealthy, and they
drove nice cars.
I think the fact is some people cannot stomach the idea of these kids
being real, so they blame the director for not interpreting the story
correctly. This is a story of middle- upper class kids, kids like your
sons and daughters.
I thought this movie was very good. 7.5/10
