Superbad's director, Greg Mottola, is back with his latest coming of age story that is reminiscent of the John Hughes films of the 1980s but much better. The film is set in 1987 and stars Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart , from Cursed and Twilight, as two college students working at the local amusement park who meet prior to heading out to fend for themselves in the real world. Kristen Stewart's performance here eclipses the one from last year's bloodless vampire tweener drama and shows her as an actress that can deliver great subdued performances. The 80s feel is dead on, the music is great and should make for a fantastic soundtrack, and the story really sucks you in and takes us thirty something's back to a cherished time. A good movie from a great upcoming director that is worth seeing as soon as possible in the theater - you will not be disappointed.
