I can't wait to see it. Your description reminds me of Peaceful Warrior.
My review from movies.Yahoo.com:
This is clearly not Hollywood's A-game. It is obvious that a lot of dedicated amateurs got together with a few professionals to make this movie.
But it works.
I have never cared about characters in a movie more than I have about these.
The reason folks read a review is to determine whether or not to go see a movie. See this movie. Now.
