There is such a lot going on here but it works. The dance scenes were GREAT. Dakota Johnson is the new Kristen Stewart.
I went in for a film about skateboarding and left having seen a moving and heartbreaking story of three young men who could only make sense of their own lives through skating. All three of them went through awfully tough circumstances but found peace, and each other, through skating. So many people fall straight through the gaps in society and never get the opportunity to climb back up. While some of them could later begin to deal with what they'd been through in meaningful ways, some couldn't, and I understand why they couldn't, but that doesn't make it any easier.
