"Middle of Nowhere"

Set in a small town in Ohio, this is a story about two teenage kids who meet while working at a theme park. They go into business together selling pot because he's looking for financial independence, while she needs money to go to med school. It's a story of self discovery and the excellent cast of unknowns (except for Susan Sarandon) do a great job.  The movie follows them through varios adventures over the course of a summer. It's not your typical "shallow and soulless kids behaving badly" movies. I found myself feeling for the young characters.  I think Dorian, (Anton Yelchin) and Grace (Eva Amurri)  are both promising young actors.
4 stars out of 5.
