The We and the I (2012)

Michel Gondry directs Michael Brodie, Teresa Lynn and Laidychen Carrasco in this teen movie following the last bus journey home of a bunch of Brooklyn school kids before summer holidays start.

Nobody wants to be stuck on a inner city bus journey full of hyped up kids. Yet Gondry takes his ragtag gang of amateurs and crafts a pretty energetic lo-fi Dazed and Confused. The inner city vibes feels accurate, the youths believable in their awful behaviour. As the seats start to open up and we are left with last few stragglers before the end of the line a sweetness and self-awareness replaces the noise and nastiness. Surprisingly satisfying.
