Mean Creek


This was really good, and quite disturbing too. Basically it's about a bully, he beats on a young kid, and the young kid and his brother and his mates decide they need to get even. They plan a prank, just to humiliate the bully, so they go out on the creek, and everyone wants to back out of the prank, as the bully doesn't seem so bad. But things take a turn, and I wont reveal any more. All the cast are excellent, top performances from everyone. Reminds me a bit of River's Edge, even though the story is different. The themes presented in the movie are important, and I'd highly recommend this.
