This film is purposefully slower paced and feels aimless. It mimics the lead. She is standoff-ish, observant, and when she finally does start to act she gets in deep. With each step forward she takes two steps back. The pacing is deliberate in its meandering. There are a few scenes that are hard ... Read More »

Way too long, trashy, 162 minutes of watching misfits, hustlers and druggies travel cross country. Way over rated.
Watch for the bear. What happened to the white convertible the female supervisor drove? May have been stolen along with the van.
Jumping from one scene to another confusing. If this is an example of what our teenage society is like this country is in trouble. I wonder if any victims ever received their magazines?

Not a very uplifting movie, but it tells a story we don't often hear. It haunted me with questions about the characters and the people left in their wake.

Long, drawn out movie but I imagine the filmmaker and writer did it on purpose considering the lives of the main characters are long and drawn out.

A road trip film that follows teenager Star who joins a group of misfits on an adventure through the sad parts of the American Mid-West selling magazines. It doesn't have a strong plot per say but offers a solid character. It is a beautiful film with a lot of atmosphere.

Movie way to long.There was no final point when the movie ended.Just a bunch of drunk,stoned,rowdy teenagers lost and running free,giving the messages it is ok to take advantage of anyone so they can play and live.Shia Le Bouf to old for this role.He seems like he can't act very well anymore. Sasha Lane very young could be good actress,needs a better vehicle movie to prove this though.

I kept thinking that this melting pot of misfits sailing adrift on their three hour tour was going to arrive at some destination eventually. I was mistaken.

A bit long but a well done film and the lead actress is extraordinary.

Mar 26, 2017 OK movie but, wow, Sasha Lane is an exceptional young talent -- I am a fan.
