good.

This was a good movie. I'm glad I randomly came acrossed it on the shelf. I'll file it under "little boy adventure stories."

Based on the book by John Knowles, it is a story of an odd couple set of young friends. One a bookish play by the rules kind of guy, and the other a popular jock who lives on the edge. One of them shares a secret. A secret of an event that changes their lives forever.

It's a darker "Dead Poets Society" of sorts.
