The story may seem a little cliché in some respects, but the majority of 'coming of age films' include common themes - school, friends, parties, drugs, love, depression, death etc. All these are heavily featured, but I thought it was done well and they didn't make it embarrassing or cringey at all. The cast was pretty epic, but I am biased because Ezra Miller is my spirit animal and Paul Rudd as an English teacher is just too lovable.
One thing that also made my love it was the constant mention of one of my favourite songs of all time, Asleep by The Smiths. I don't have much else to say on that topic, but it was worth a mention. If you haven't heard that song then please. Listen now.
It made me laugh and cry. It made me want to be in their friendship group. It made me happy and I definitely recommend that everyone should see it.
