CA 2018. D: Keith Behrman. A: Keith Behrman. 93 min. Feature. Eng. OV with Eng. ST. Suitable from age 12. Recommended from age 15

It’s Franky’s 17th birthday, and he’s having a real blast. The house to himself, party with all his friends and Priscilla, his girlfriend, can barely keep her hands off him. Franky is on cloud nine, but then he wakes up next to his best friend Ballas, and suddenly Franky’s world is upside down. High school becomes an ordeal, and his parents’ efforts to understand him are even more overwhelming. Only Ballas’ little sister Natasha “Tash” seems to understand him, but she also has to deal with her own problems. So it goes on, up and down in Frankys emotional roller coaster. (WB)
