Review: The theme of an astronaut delivering a pair of kicks to the protagonist is briefly referenced in the trailer, which makes this design seem a bit forced and strange even if it’s a far more critical element to the film.

Trailer Rating: C+

Review: Independent cinema has a perception problem. It’s often too quirky for mainstream audiences and trailers like this do little to push beyond that impression. It looks to be a fairly straight-forward coming of age saga, but one that doesn’t quite know what it wants to be.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
