Based on a popular young-adult novel and brimming with all the angst and schmaltz you’d expect from such a source, this awkward coming-of-age drama does nothing to gild the legacy of middlebrow maestro Rob Reiner (The Bucket List, Stand By Me). The agreeable Madeline Carroll and Callan McAuliffe star as kids growing up in the same Michigan neighborhood; over time they must come to terms with the spiritual rot beneath their 1960s suburban utopia. Everything that happens is presented first through his eyes and then through hers, Rashomon-style, and accompanied by heavy-handed voice-over. Eventually the kids figure out that parents and other authority figures (among them Rebecca De Mornay, Anthony Edwards, Penelope Miller, and Aidan Quinn) don’t always have it together. Was this trip necessary?
