Mark Jenkins, a movie reviewer for the media outlet targeted at homosexuals who appreciate vintage shaving brushes (NPR)reviewed the dull, saccharine movie targeted at Kenyon students who appreciate writing poetry under the Upside Down Tree (Liberal Arts). He thinks the film is extremely mediocre and self-indulgent.

Evidence:

“If Jesse and Zibby’s conversations are mildly painful, they’re a delight compared to their correspondence.”

Interestingly, Jenkins also refers twice to the movie actually taking place at Kenyon, even though it technically isn’t set at any specific institution. Read the rest of the review here.
