BRAINSTORM is "sometimes comic, sometimes poignant, and at its best offers what appears to be a credible portrait of where kids are in this moment. The young actors fill the screen with commitment, talent and a clear dedication to authenticity... In the process, we learn a bit about the science behind developing young brains and gain some insight into why young people do what they do and how they see the world." - Bob Trussell,
