Incredibly, this film hasn't received nearly the reception or hype as Like Crazy, another film with two young leads in romantic roles. That being said, I found myself enjoying this film far more than that one. The characters here are well developed and are far from perfect. Their flaws and shortcomings are put up right from the beginning and they make the characters people that are easy to relate to and really feel for.

The film isn't one of the great romances of all time but its heartfelt and easy to follow. Set in a New York prep school, the social shortcomings of the main characters and their attempts to be socially accepted drive the film Freddie Highmore does a good job and I was pleasantly surprised by the job that Emma Roberts does as well. If you have to choose, definitely take this over Like Crazy.

My Conclusion: 
Great date movie. Characters have good depth and easy to fall in love with them.
