While hanging with his teenage pals, Luke (Shameless’ Cameron Monaghan) has a moment of clarity, vividly envisioning the death of his best friend Stan. He ignores it after being dismissed and laughed off by his friends, but not before a friend captures the revelation on his camcorder – a nice nod to an era before the ever-present smartphone and immediacy of Snapchat. Shockingly, the next morning his premonition comes to fruition, making him an outcast and freak among his classmates. As he dodges the dogged reporters who have secured from his friends the videotape that validates his vision, Luke and his friend Faye are mourning Stan’s loss while losing what little control they held over their lives. Luke risks losing yet another friend as Faye continues to spiral into alcohol and drug-induced hazes for reasons beyond grief. Adapted from Joanne Proulx’s eponymous award-winning novel, director Robin Hayes delves into the 1990’s with a spot-on soundtrack, Nirvana-inspired hairstyles and tongue-in-cheek jabs at small town malaise. Between the burden of his prophecies and an attraction to his deceased friend’s girlfriend, Luke is doing his best to navigate the complexities of adolescence, which is hard enough without psychic abilities. Featuring Juliette Lewis (What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Basketball Diaries) as Luke’s yoga-practising mother who’s always in her son’s corner, Hayes’ debut coming-of-age tale is a stylish and authentic exploration of the youthful struggle to find your place in the world.
