Reminiscent both in tone and style, I have no idea how I missed this as it was an official selection at Cannes this year. I'm guessing it's probably because it didn't have a trailer at the time, but it does now. "Robert (Ezra Miller) is a sensitive young kid finding it difficult to fit in at the elite East Coast preparatory school he attends. He attends sessions with the school counselor, takes his medication and spends a lot of his spare time in front of a computer screen, glued to the images of sex and violence he can access. Robert's roommate Trevor (Emory Cohen) is dealing drugs, yet is the closest thing to a friend he has, at least until he plucks up the nerve to get closer to open, attractive Amy (Addison Timlin). Paired to make a video project together, Robert and Amy traipse the school corridors gathering footage, until a tragedy occurs that affects the whole of the school, and has consequences for Robert in particular." Check the trailer after the break.

That actually looks quite good. It had made my short list of films to see but I had scheduling issues with another film and after reading a few reviews from Cannes, decided to drop it off the list. Now I'm wondering if that was such a good idea. Bugger.
