This film won the Palm d?Or (grand prize) at the most recent Cannes Film Festival. It is a fictionalized account of the Columbine High School tragedy. Director Gus Van Sant assembles a cast of non-professional actors which gives the film a haunting realism. High school life is portrayed as mundane until the violence erupts.
Stunning... rarely do form and content add up with such harmonious grace and power. - Los Angeles Times
