    The Fallout

    ★★★½

    What's so refreshing about The Fallout is that it isn't a "school shooting" movie - it's a traditional teen comedy that is intruded upon by a school shooting drama, turning the characters' world, and our understanding of genre vocabularies, on its head. The utilization of high school movie tropes - including but not limited to a love triangle, a drug trip sequence, and a pretty, charming lead inexplicably playing an awkward outcast - in this context provides a much more impactful overall experience than if this had been a straight-forward tragedy.
