After graduation? Type today? I don't know what are we going to do. Probably grab something to eat. — Kevin Conway.

If fifteen years instead of listening to meaningless rap with one verse, ten times a repeating chorus and the stolen negatives, or other variations on the theme, generously provided by youth TV sales, have focused their musical tastes on the American punk rock and pop-punk, then you probably are aware of the situation in which hero falls clip "California" of the group Hawk Helson, who fell asleep on a boring lesson in his less boring and rather cold canadian school, suddenly finds himself in this Sunny state. If developed further this day dream, embodied in the dream it will still be skateboards, complete absence of parents, according to least a large quantity of an abandoned building, in which you can do anything, and to fill a wall with the words to your favorite songs, other people's swimming pools, which you can climb when the owners are not at home, creating with a small company of like-minded people their own musical group whose then hits through the decades will also be assets of the abandoned houses, used cars in elegant condition for a couple of thousand dollars and a vintage denim jacket, hung with patches of favorite bands. And if you had such a dream, but now you twenty five tomorrow you go to buy warm down jacket, because the bone felt the approach of the severe Russian cold, that is not to despair to see the movie "Only the young", telling about children living in the California dream with all attributes find out what have you lost much less than it seems.

Blind faith in God, which can be used as excuse a thousand different awkward situations, and sometimes gives bonuses from sponsors, like free tacos; the most creative a love triangle, in which love as much as this a geometric shape similar to the heart and the most vile gossip that their accompany; empty chatter about create a group with the complete absence, as ideas for text and communication skills with tools; trying to be good for all from — from the faith of the parents and ending with beautiful girl which not than to speak. That is the reality of modern teenage American dream, to show the audience Jason Tippet and Elizabeth MIMS who were interested young minds, and randomly met future heroes of his documentary in the skate Park in his hometown of Jason. And all nothing, as the above things are present in the life of almost every modern teenager if the characters do not carried much more than was demonstrated in screen, the full potential of their history was buried in the desire to just follow not funny jokes and everyday life, completely abandoning analysis. The Director of the documentary film "Waiting for lightning", telling about his friend, a skateboarder, because of the proximity to the subject of his history is not able to critically look at his fate and to ask tough, but the right questions in the result of which was as if the main character's father accidentally killed himself a because were few days jail for a penny child support. Tippet and MIMS not was so familiar with the future of their characters of the film, but admitted that same error, as not becoming to dig deeper where it just needed to be done.

The only female heroine suddenly finds out that her mother, whom she had always thought dead, is alive, healthy, was on Facebook even sends her application add friends. That follow — the scandals, intrigues, investigation, tears, questions, confusion, rethinking family history? Not only in the film, Tippet and MIMS, in which such a startling revelation, also pseudophilosophical tirade, probably pre-written and thought out, because to observe the eternal teenage "Dating and breaking up" and associated with this small intrigue is much more interesting. Of course, the desire of the filmmakers not to use guys like object research and to exploit them suffering is commendable, but the surface did they not only with respect to the major tragedies of these young people. They asked them about relationships with the opposite sex, in that time, as I should learn them the philosophy contained in the music that they listen to and the lifestyle that they chose. What it is generally and that's it means specifically for them? There was a lot said about creating your own group, but that's all dropped, even the soundtrack of the film is of the standard collection of songs about love, which according to the clothes of the characters does not quite match their preferences. All the passions of the characters are left without their detailed comments, and the result is a sort of portrait of hipsters from punk rock, that of all the fashion among the young things decided to choose t-shirt Black Flag and stripe Treat Minor. "Only the young" is not the story of an average American teen, so well as and not history of contrasts — teenagers-marginals, it is a narrative that does not give a starting point and has no end point, it is a tale that begins in anywhere goes to anywhere, even if the judge movie, demanding that it only stunning of realism, that the illustration of the lives of these three guys from southern California are not has no value, even in this context.
