Description After graduation, Bram gets his dream job at a local newspaper. In his mind he's the next Woodward (but he's probably more of a Bernstein). A year in, he realizes that maybe the paper business is no longer what he'd seen in the movies. Instead of investigative journalism, he is writing easily consumable Top 10 Lists - Best Hot Dogs in the City. Ten Ways to Tell You Grew Up in the 90s. After the paper is hit with another round of layoffs, Bram stumbles upon a potentially explosive story involving the city's controversial mayor. But he needs to beat the mayor's smooth talking aide, Kamal, to the punch. This could be Bram's big break - if he had any idea how to be a real journalist.

So much has been said about this movie, and so many people in it. I'm not sure where to start. I just saw it at a theater here in Los Angeles, and it was not easy to sit through. The trailers and posters gave it away. The director and writer had tried to market this movie as a coming of age story, and the characters were supposed to be young adults. They were not. They were adolescents. I am only 26, and I really didn't think that this movie would be the same. The director, the script, the characters, the story, the acting. I really think that if they had not made it about teenagers and tried to develop the characters later, it would have been a better movie. The actors are all fine, but I don't think they were all used to the situation. And I didn't think that any of them were capable of making the movie great. I mean, I know that actors have certain tastes and way of doing things, but that is not the case with these two. I thought that all the other characters in the movie were really cool, and I loved their chemistry. And that was my biggest problem. I really think that it could have been better if they had tried to develop the characters later. Maybe a little later. And the music was really good, and really well used. It was an honest and honest, sometimes painful, look at the lives of teenagers. But this movie just didn't work for me. Maybe if I had seen it at home, with a good soundtrack and a few friends, it would have been better. But I didn't like it that much.
