    The Girl Who Invented Kissing

    ★★★½

    Suki Waterhouse might just win me over in the long run, but Dash Mihok is the remarkable standout in a decent enough little indie that doesn't quite know how to tell its story.
    That being said, stories from small town America will always have place in my heart, and the surprisingly familiar cast lift the film up from "meh" to bland obscurity, even if it deserves a bit more than that.
