Hot Docs 2012 - Only the Young

Only the Young by Elizabeth Mims & Jason Tippet, 2011

Garrison, Kevin and Skye are three teenagers living in California. Simply put, this is the plot of Only the Young. Capturing moments of these characters' lives as they date, skateboard, and discuss the concerns in their lives (with various awkward, hilarious, and idiotic actions peppered in between), Mims and Tippet have made an extremely engaging and touching film. Beautifully shot over the course of two years, Only the Young is an impressive debut, showing us those relatable years in a very honest and poetic way.

4 1/2 out of 5
