We should be so lucky that a film comes out that is this perceptive on how our thoughts and words have the power to create or destroy human connections. Cyrus' dialogue flows like poetry, reminiscent of early Kevin Smith and Slackers-era Richard Linklater.

It deals with controversial matters in a balanced way, giving voice to all sides and with an enjoyable plot to boot. Speak Your Mind is a fascinating exploration of the coming-of-age genre in the digital age, and another indication that Baetz is destined for great things.
