Director Gus Van Sant has a talent for getting under the skin of troubled, confused, alienated American teens, and this one sits comfortably beside his previous films like My Own Private Idaho, Elephant and Last Days. It has a lot in common with those last two in particular, although here the story of a young man looking back on the circumstances that led to the death of a security guard is based on a novel, not on real events.
Inspired by 1999's real-life Columbine shootings, this unsettling drama is a fictional account of violence in an American high school.
