Coming out of age story - at its best !
"12 and holding" is another great movie directed by Michael Cuesta, who
recently became my favourite movie director. If you are looking for a
fine Coming Out of Age story chances are that that you will find it
all in "12 and holding " . It is a simple story without much special
effects or famous actors playing but the way the story is shown will
make you remember what you've seen .One could say that the movie was
disturbing as it showed things most people would never want to happen
to them or their kids at the same time everything seems to real. One
just couldn't miss the exceptional performance of the young Conor
Donovan who plays two roles and does it so well, that I have to admit
that I haven't noticed that both boys are played by the same actor.
The soundtrack is extremely powerful especially the melancholic music
in some scenes. I did not notice any flaws and felt quite related to
the actors. My opinion that all viewers would able to sense something
similar to what they felt when they were growing up that sense of
anger, or desire for revenge or the will to protect your relatives and
Despite of what some other reviewers wrote I did not find the movie
tough to watch yes it deals with violence even death , but it does it
in quite an unique way ..

Well made and well cast
These types of films only work if you have good young actors and this
film has them. All three leads were spectacular. They all did a
wonderful job - no Dakota Fanning-like overacting or hamming. The fact
the script is solid helps too. People compare this to Larry Clark but
Clark is a little more dark in my opinion. There's no kid sex and the
only sexual part of the story if the girl's infatuation with an older
man - I was still creeped out when she takes her top off in front of
him but the character handles it well.
I really liked L.I.E. and the only thing this film doesn't have that
that one did is Brian Cox (who elevated anything he's in) but everyone
here did a great job.
A solid, well made film. I recommend..
