Yelchin is their Ferris Bueller—and Downey Jr. the world's friendliest Mr. Rooney...
Despite his life of privilege, the boy doesn’t have the things he really wants - the things every teenager wants - security and popularity.
...a wonderful iteration of the adolescent coming-of-age movie.
The film rests squarely on Yelchin's slim shoulders; he's in every scene and, happily, a pleasure to watch.
At one point, it's a satire. At another, it's a teen comedy. Then it's a drama. Then a message piece.
