Box Elder is the story of four friends and their lackadaisical, yet important, journey through their final year of college. Todd Sklar wrote, directed and starred in this hilarious rendition of college life. The main plot of the movie centers on John Scott (Todd Sklar) and how his friends, Alex (Alex Rennie), Nick (Nick Renkoski) and Brad (Chad Haas), help him deal with the break up from his girlfriend, Laura (Hina Abdullah). The break up is just a running theme, though, as the movie cultivates an esoteric feeling, where the characters don't really do much, but it feels as if a lot is accomplished. Of course, there are shenanigans, as in any film about college life, but they go over as experiences of this generation. They confront the fast-talking, instant gratification generation with it's own ambivalence. Box Elder is a compelling and hilarious take on college life and provides insight into the psyche of generation.
