Twelve and Holding

(USA, 2005, 94 minutes)

After his twin brother dies in an accidental fire, a 12-year old and his two best friends decide to change their lives, even if they don't quite go about it the right way. Intense, challenging coming-of-age melodrama about kids trying to be adults too soon, handled with sensitivity but without flinching from harder subjects others might skirt.
