Fresh: For all of Gus Van Sant's narrative weavings, for all of his grabs towards emotions and reactions, it amounts to little; a belated film with belated functions.

Boring... I didn't watch the whole movie and I don't have any intention to continue watch it.

Mentor movies strike me as rather dull, frankly. Good Will Hunting made it work - this did not. Though it's been five years since I've seen this movie, nothing in it has stuck with me - it may seem like a long stretch of time, but there are many films that have left far more of an impact that I'd seen just as long ago. To be brief, this offers very little originality.
