When a young man and a young woman (Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde) meet for the first time after their high school graduation, their passion for each other is relentless; but because the young woman's father (Bruce Greenwood) has career plans for her and the young man is not up to par in his eyes, he throws roadblocks in their way. Also with Joely Richardson, Robert Patrick, Rhys Wakefield, Dayo Okeniyi, Emma Rigby, Anna Enger and Fabianne Therese. Directed by Shana Feste. [1:43]

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.




INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
