A teenage girl with nothing to lose joins a traveling magazine sales crew, and gets caught up in a whirlwind of hard partying, law bending and young love as she criss-crosses the Midwest with a band of misfits.
The premise of the film is fantastic, and one I enthusiastically support. A subject that should effortlessly lend itself to a poignant narrative; this attempt sadly falls quite short of its potential. Overall rather mediocre in emotional impact, sort of the Zoloft of intense emotional movies. Much of the acting is very mechanical and cue driven, Varsity at best. Character development and definition is predictable and generically structured. Don't expect a gripping drama but rather 20 minutes of promising fireside fable intensity drawn out and diluted into 84 minutes. It could have been so much more. All that being said, there is something that I did like about it that will allow me to give it 5/10 stars.
