Nearing Grace (2005)

Film details

Synopsis

Coming-of-age drama. The Nearing family seems to be dealing with the death of their mother by making every bad choice possible. Henry busies himself with the lapses in judgment available to an intelligent high school boy: falling hard for the school vixen, failing to notice the attractions of the girl next door, and allowing his existential ruminations to fully distract him from any actual schoolwork. What can you expect when life begins to hand you the first heady rushes of philosophy and the overwhelming swoon of romantic possibility at the same time?
