10 Years DVD Review, Written by: Karen Benardello
Teenagers often times want to rush their high school experiences so they can embrace the freedom that they often associate with adulthood. Little do they realize that the time they spend with their friends and peers during their youth often influence and shape their adult lives, and they’ll often spend their time after graduation trying to rectify the problems created in school. This emotional dilemma is daringly and comically featured and debated in the ensemble film ‘10 Years,’ which New Yorkers can now buy on Amazon. The movie respectably refuses to present the insecurities people carry into adulthood from school as trivial, and isn’t afraid to show the lengths people will go to in order to improve their self-worth and confidence.
‘10 Years’ follows a group of high school friends who reconnect on the night of their 10-year reunion, and discover that a decade after graduating, no one’s fully grown up. The group is led by Jake (played by Channing Tatum), who is deeply in love with his girlfriend, Jess (portrayed by Jenna Dewan-Tatum), and id ready to propose to her. He quickly doubts his decision when he runs into his high school flame, Mary (played by Rosario Dawson), for the first time since college. But when he discovers she’s married to Paul (portrayed by Ron Livingston), Jake learns to value his relationship with Jess.
