“Deserves points for going beyond the typical coming-of-age drivel aimed at teens.”~Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Aroview: An introverted teen with a troubled past is embraced by an eccentric clique of friends in this deeply-felt coming-of-age drama, adapted by Stephen Chbosky from his own best-selling novel.

Set in the 'mix-tape' culture of 1991, the clunky music references and general obviousness might irk those of a certain age, but this will otherwise be fully embraced by a generation weened on Emma "Hermione" Watson and are looking to move on with her for an earnest fix of teenage angst.
