This engaging geek-makes-good US high-school drama is well played – leads Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller are all excellent – and goes beyond the clichés of the genre to deal with the darker material beneath: sexual experimentation, drugs, abuse, loneliness and mental illness. Oh, and it also has the best use of Come On Eileen that you're ever likely to see in a Hollywood movie.
