Title: The Go-Getter
Director: Martin Hynes
Writer: Martin Hynes
Starring: Lou Taylor Pucci, Zooey Deschanel, Jena Malone
Music: M. Ward
Length: 93 minutes
Synopsis: an angsty teenager takes a road trip in a stolen car
How I saw it: on video (rented from Netflix), October 2008
Subjective Rating: 7/10 (Good).
8/10 (points off for concept and cinematography) c. 2.9/4 (Good).
It’s got a lot of Bad Indie Movie tropes, but manages to be a pleasant romantic comedy despite itself. Not the sort of movie I like (we just rented it because of M. Ward – it’s the movie responsible for the formation of the band She & Him), but I liked it anyway.
