I was hesitant in going to see this film simply because of the bad connotation of having the High School Musical Star in this movie. However, it is directed by Richard Linklater, which I happen to really enjoy most of his films. It also has one of my favorite American actresses, Claire Danes, which I haven't seen in a long time.
The film is entertaining, I was surprised by Zac Efron, he is not a good actor yet but he definitely could be a big Hollywood star if he doesn't derail like most Disney stars do.
The film is entertaining and has some really good actors in it. I recommend it as a good time.
