Cast overview, first billed only:
Robert Kurcz ...


Archie Williams is a 17-year old media geek who has suddenly found himself the most talked-about kid in school. He has announced that he's going to kill himself- on camera- for a class project. His classmates, parents, Sierra- the most beautiful girl in school, and a "Shady Bunch" of shrinks, doctors, pill-pushers, and counselors descend on Archie. Some are hoping to save him, some want to imitate him, others try to push him over the brink. Archie films every moment of his high school experience, hiding nothing from his audience: realities of life, death, violence, sex, drugs, and the intense media overload and hypocrisy that bombard all teenagers. Written by Steven Jay Rubin, Executive Producer

A must see for teens and adults
21 April 2009 | by (Eagle Rock, United States) – See all my reviews

I saw a screening of this film about a year ago, when it was still being fine-cut, but it still contained an emotional intensity which stayed with me for days after. Stylistically, the film is constantly engaging. It switches between documentary-style footage shot by the main character and a combination of animation and roto-scoping techniques that give the film a unique look and feel. The true achievement of this film is that it deals with teenage depression, apathy, escapism, and violence in a way that engages both teens and adults. The film avoids devolving into melodrama, which considering the subject material, is a feat unto itself. Without giving too much away, this film shatters preconceptions about issues (especially the cliché of the suburban American teen who is disconnected from reality) which have been depicted in many films, but have not been treated in a mature fashion.
