After seemingly ordinary 15-year-old Leland (Ryan Gosling) stuns his quiet suburban community with a chilling crime, he is sent to juvenile hall where he meets Pearl (Don Cheadle), a teacher and aspiring writer who dreams of making Leland's compelling story into a book. As Pearl digs deeper into Leland's life and the people caught up in it - his mother (Jena Malone) - he uncovers Leland's disturbing motive. The tables soon turn when the enigmatic teen forces Pearl to examine his own morally questionable behaviour. Climaxing with a shocking collision of violence, understanding, and hope, Leland will take you to states you never imagined.

  • I found this very boring.

  • Found this really hard to get into. Slow moving.

  • If you like movies like donnie darko then this may appeal to you, i found it had the same kind of feel to it
