Films about teens are scarce in 2012 so other than Hunger Games that came out in March the pickings have been thin for that genre.  With the teen movie Perks of Being a Wallflower opening in a very slow month mostly devoted to horror flicks, hopefully it won't be overlooked as its pretty darn good. Able to touch a finger to the pulse of what m... Read More

(Richard "Rick" Augusztin)  9/24/2012 9:53 PM EDT
Although 10 Years started off on the slower side for me, as the movie progressed I realized why; the heart of the film lies with the characters' shared back stories, and how each defies or yields to the expectations set for them long ago.  That's exactly what writer/director Jamie Linden has done.  If you don't have characters...
