Time Out says

Made before ‘Juno’, just following ‘Hard Candy’ in 2005, this sees Ellen Page (right) in another rebellious teenager role, as spiky Goth Sherry in fellow Canadian-born director Alison Murray’s uneven debut. A meandering road trip of a movie, loosely based on Murray’s own experiences as a 15-year-old, it journeys from the addict-filled streets of Berlin to the raves of Spain as Sherry joins a VW van-load of travelling cultish communards, whose (bare-torsoed) leaders’ anti-drug and rehabilitative rhetoric belies the reality of their sexual predation and power-freak obsessiveness. Despite its lively hand-held camerawork and aura of sleazy realism, it’s too fundamentally naive, humourless and psychologically shallow to convince.
