The slow, and indeed, boring, down-to-earth, sad story of a teenage girl's struggle to come to terms with her sexuality is not new, but when a filmmaker makes a movie about it, it really matters. Carrie Coon has done a good job of telling the story of Katelyn Howard, a 16-year-old who, in the spring of 2007, was living with her aunt and uncle in South Carolina when she told her parents about her love for boys. As she grew older, Katelyn began to think about boys, girls, and what she wanted to be when she grew up. In the film, she becomes friends with several young men, including Cameron Schuller, an actual high school student from the area who lives in a trailer. She wants to be a nurse, a lawyer, and a pilot. One night, Katelyn meets Lucas, a 15-year-old who says he has a crush on her. Lucas is a great student and a good sportsman, but he is not the ideal male companion. He is not an ideal student, either, and he is a spoiled brat. The two begin a relationship, but Katelyn's parents, who are very strict and expect their daughter to live a perfect life, are not very welcoming. One night, after having sex, they accuse Katelyn of lying. It's a terrible situation, and it really drives Katelyn to the breaking point. She moves out, gets a job, and tries to get to know Lucas again, but he continues to insist on being with her. Finally, she gets a job at a local television station, and she is able to get some self-esteem back. The truth comes out, and the police call Katelyn's parents, but the school principal does not want her to tell them what really happened. Eventually, Katelyn decides to tell the truth, but she is still considered a liar. In the end, she learns that Lucas and Katelyn are indeed friends. The movie is not the best in the world, but it is a good story. There are a lot of scenes where Katelyn is crying, and she is always there for her best friend. There is a lot of touching scenes, and I think the director, Shauna Davis, has done a good job of bringing the story to life. I thought the performances of the cast were good, and I thought that the movie was very moving. I think this movie is very important, and it should be seen by everyone.
