Tender story of love, like and compassion. Surprisingly sensitive portrayal of young people living their lives while coping with problems. It's bound to feel a bit over the top - having such limited time for characters with OCD, Tourette's and Anorexia interacting in every scene. I recommend it to people who won't be offended by the foul language.

What a gem. Marginalized young adults with Tourette's, OCD and anorexia escape into the big wild world to drive to the ocean. This is a journey of friendship and self discovery. Great performances, especially by Dev Patel (Marigold Hotel) who plays the fellow with OCD. Warning: The Tourette's is full of foul, inappropriate language and there is nudity.

A nice coming of age film involving three people with mental issues. Robert Patrick is the "villain" figure, a politician who hides his son from the public in order to win an election. It's a drama with touches of comedy, quite entertaining and touching.

Too annoying and too much swearing. Didn't finish watching it.

I thought Robert Sheehan did superb acting playing someone that has Tourettes.

This film is about 2 young people who each ahve a different psychological ailment. Kravitz has anorexia, Patel is OCD and a germaphobe and the last character has Tourettes. I like Kravitz and Patel, I think they are good actors, but the ailments are played over the top, esp the Tourettes and OCD. It's ok and I feel as good as it was going to get.
