    ★★★½

    Regisseur John Stockwell hat sich 2008 mit "Middle of Nowhere" erfolgreich am Genre der melancholisch gefärbten Coming-of-Age-Stories versucht und setzt nicht nur seine beiden Protagonisten – dargestellt durch Eva Amurri und Anton Yelchin – trefflich in Szene, sondern punktet auch mit schönem Setting und noch schönerem Soundtrack. Zweifellos nicht der große Wurf des Genres, doch ein rundweg sympathischer kleiner Film, der ruhig ein wenig mehr Aufmerksamkeit verdient hätte.

    Although charming enough, Middle of Nowhere initially seems like just another run-of-the-mill coming-of-age stoner comedy. But a couple of character revelations about half way through transform it into something rather touching and heartfelt, and at the heart of it yet again, as I've noticed in films watched recently, is a really endearing performance from Anton Yelchin, ably supported by the rest of the cast.

    It does, on the odd occasion, devolve into minor clichés of the genre but redeems itself with a slightly subverted and totally lovely ending.

    Anton siempre será uno de mis actores favoritos, aún no entiendo por qué murió. La historia no está muy buena, es muy genérica. Sin embargo cuenta con buenos actores y eso la salva bastante.

    When Grace (Eva Amurri Martino) realises her irresponsible mother (Susan Sarandon) hasn’t paid of the credit cards that she took out in her name, thus running her chances of getting funding for college, she teams up with her summer job co-worker Dorian (Anton Yelchin) in his scheme to make money from selling marijuana.

    Middle of Nowhere has some great performances and some believable and relatable teenage characters. While Dorian and Grace are good friends it doesn’t mean they don’t fight…

    This film is beautiful. It starts funny and witty but then it turned dark and then it's all good again. 
    Eva Amurri was really good in this film. 
    Anton Yelchin? Well, let's just say I still think he's not getting the motherfucking spotlight that he deserves!

    Getragen von der Chemie zwischen der bezaubernden Eva Amurri und der für solche Film immer perfekte Anton Yelchin bringt es John Stockwell tatsächlich fertig eine rundum gelungene Geschichte über das Erwachsenwerden mit einer kleinen Priese Marihuana.

    It was nice to see Sarandon working with her daughter, but the movie never stepped out of the relm of mediocre. Anton Yelchin gave a strong performance, and he was really the star of the film!

    A very chill summery movie. Not much special about it, but I do like the uppidy Anton Yelchin. Just like in Alpha Dog, he just seems like a dude you'd wanna hang out with.

    Apparently water park themed films are a thing. After how much I loved The Way, Way Back I thought I'd give this a go. It's another one about young people trying to find themselves and complicated relationships. It's an ok film, there's nothing offensive about it, but it wasn't a patch on the aforementioned film.

    One of those stories about complicated relationships that I tend to enjoy.

    A mother's irresponsible financial habits look set to ruin the elder daughter's chance at a college education. She seeks 'alternative' means of finance which bring up said complications.
