Sydney Film Festival Day 12 Review Wasted On The Young

Wasted on the young follows what appears to be a familiar story - well off private school kids with lots of cash, super invulnerability and no supervision (Even at school?) throw a party and things get out of control.

The aftermath of rumour, revenge and violence is played out over the remainder of the film. Sometimes imagined, sometimes real. The use of technology by these kids is cleverly embedded without being jarring or taking you out of the story.

Some great ideas and I think all of them made it to film - chaotic and overdone I really just wanted one ending not the seven we got. The director has great potential and future offerings should be watched with anticipation.
