This echoes the iconic image of Buffy and Angel… a bit. There’s definitely something here. An archetypal kind of teen romance charged with some real passion.
I just wish that the rest of the movie/storytelling was near the level of Buffy. Can’t have everything, I guess.
Current YA writers should raise their game. Make it entertaining AND smart. It can be achieved. Let’s not follow the footsteps of Twilight; let’s wipe it out of our minds. (Of course, now that Fifty Shades Of Grey has taken shape as another slick box office monstrosity, this will prove to be difficult. Sigh.)
