    ★★★★½

    "right here. right now." 

    so careful with the way it treats its characters and their emotions. You can feel their pain, their joy, their excitement... you can feel them live. every scene is flooded with life and all that it brings with it. this is special for so many reasons, and I will forever be grateful for lucas’ beautiful and creative mind. here’s to being young... to being young and feeling as many things as possible<3

    “let’s play.”

    "this is every guy’s worst nightmare to be accused of something like that"
    "can you guess what every woman’s worst nightmare is?" 

    There is absolutely no chance in hell I can write something coherent about this right now, I feel like I’ve just been violently shaken for 2 hours. All I’m gonna say is, this is fucking ASTOUNDING. undeniably stomach-turning, heartbreaking, audacious and in-your-face but most of all ASTOUNDING. I know it’s easy to say this but nothing can prepare…
