Review of Winner of WGU contest

Okay so I had the oppurtunity to go to the premiere thanks to the VIP PREMIERE CONTEST that I won last week. I once again thank everyone involved in that contest and making everything happen!
The trip was amazing, and the accomodations by everyone was fantastic. The producers and everyone involved in the movie like James Hoke, Anthony Miranda, Jonathan Glatzer and of course Richard Becker were all so down to earth and amazing people. I'll cut to the chase and get to the premeire and the movie but will give more details later.
The movie was amazing. It was really deep and the storyline was amazing. Its not the typical teenage comedy that one would expect to see like "Mean Girls" or "John Tucker Must Die" but it was one that is much more deep and retained comedy while keeping a serious and strong story line.
What Goes Up revolves around Steve Coogan's (a journalist) perspective of a bunch of students who are suffering the loss of their teacher. It should be noted that all these students come from completely different cliques in high school, but it was that one teacher that brought them all together, and brought them to appreciate each other. While observing and trying to create a story for his report, his connections with the characters increase and become more personal. I'm not going to ruin anything, but just this should gather everyone's interest for the film.
The casting of the movie was amazing, and each character brought something unique and amazing to the film. The film has a really 80's vibe to it, and everything is so well put together to create such a solid film. The soundtrack, the editing, the production all complete the film to something, that I hope becomes a hit.
I know all of you are probably wondering how Hilary's acting was...Without any bias to it being a movie with Hilary Duff in it, I personally loved her role in the film. Her character, Lucy, in the film is definitely one that needs to be in it to keep the film's plot going and its just really cool to see Hilary in a high school comedy that isn't her normal role (A Cinderella Story, Raise Your Voice).
This movie definitely requires attention or else you will get lost and confused, which could be a good thing or a bad thing. However, since I got into it from the beginning, I was restless to see what would happen.
I definitely recommend this film to each and everyone of you and really encourage people to go see it in theaters (if there is one close to you). Not only because the film is a great watch, but also because this movie needs all the support from us fans that it can get. If it proves to be a success this weekend, it will expand and hopefully open in more theaters!
I give the movie a 9/10. If you guys have any questions regarding the movie, or anything you want to know about the premiere, feel free to PM me.
