Rocket Science

An emotional and sincere drama, “Rocket Science,” shows that life is more than an exact science. This nervous film, with its spiritual writing and its reflective theme celebrates the determination of a high school student who tries to overcome his impediment in speaking to.

The new Reece Thompson portrays Hal Hefner, a 15-year-old with a minor but socially alienating disability, stutters uncontrollably. Ordering a meal in the school cafeteria is a test because he knows what he wants, but he can not say the word. He lives in a dysfunctional family, his father moves after a warm speech and his older brother terrified calling him a variety of girls’ names. When the school debate champion, Ginny Ryerson (Anna Kendrick) decides to write to the Hal discussion team, we feel her life while the minors dog might change. But can you overcome this huge obstacle?

The film’s opening scene is the latest debate in New Jersey, where Ginny and team-mate Ben (Nicholas D’Agosto) are en route to winning the title. The scene illustrates the required verbal dexterity and sets up barriers to face Hal. Then he is hit violently with Ginny Ryerson is completely immersed in the ultra competitive world of high school debate.

The cast of this film is perfect and Reece Thompson built an endearing character around his affliction, one with a desire to join the others. Anna Kendrick interprets the ambitious performance fatal woman, a fascinating blend of sensuality and connivant hardness, is the catalyst that takes history to its conclusion. Nicholas D’Agosto is the mysterious character of this film and we wonder if the tension of the competition was its destruction. Is it the shame of failure or that seeks the peace of being a combatant? Anyway, this is an intriguing character that allows Hal to continue his quest. Aaron Yoo plays the curiaire bi friend Hess Hesston Hal and steals a lot of stage with his touch of strange comic. Vincent Piazza, Father Hal, vividly depicts a man down and lost in a world of confusion and misery.

Beginning with his first feature film, writer / director Jeff Blitz (Spellbound) perfectly captures the world of teenage anxiety where everyone, regardless of age, becomes confused with desire and tends to human contact. The story is semi-autobiographical as Blitz, himself, bégaiait in high school. He decided to join the discussion team and several years later won the New Jersey State Debate Championship. “Rocket Science” reproduces the archetypes and expectations of typical Hollywood history to present a poignant movie that is new, fun and original.
