I enjoyed this movie a lot. In the moment, it's hard to recognize that Cal is a teenager in high school. I believe that parallels the reality. Inappropriate relationships happen incrementally. Both characters were instrumental in each others' life, and helped move past the trauma. I was relieved that when everything was said and done, and the movie was coming to an end that Kelly recognized the situation to be inappropriate, and took steps to make sure it didn't go any further. I felt that was real. People get swept up in the moment. Then once the moment is over you see things clearly. Well done.

I can’t believe the inappropriateness of this film! An underage boy's rude perverted behavior is let off the hook by his neighbor b/c he is in a wheelchair. Not only let off the hook, but trusted with her baby, then progressing into the object of her distraction/affection and given the power to endanger home and marriage. Beyond comprehension. Vandalizing a school, inappropriate – no, illegal - relations with a 17 year old? These are not portrayed as a struggle, as conflict, but rather simply as understandable – even whimsical and fun - given her troubled marriage and post-partum issues. It comes across as a rom-com. Simply gross. It’s understandable that a similar scenario could realistically develop, but here it’s inappropriately portrayed as hey – look at my rebellious blue hair – hee hee it’s so punky! Disabilities, post-partum depression these are troublesome, difficult issues and this film really missed the mark. The boy’s intense creepiness is so weird. Juliette Lewis, in my eyes a QUEEN, an iconic artist, surprised me immensely by agreeing to be a part of this misogynistic drivel. Directed by a woman? Shameful.
