Why see American Idiot? It’s a show that truly embodies lot of the angst and conflict many young people have felt throughout many decades, just placed in the early 2000’s. It shows the need to get out of your home town, to branch out and try new things, to find who you are as an individual, and all the speed bumps that can come along the way. It has three separate stories with all three guys experiencing vastly different hardships. It also speaks to the feelings of pride and resentments of going to the Iraq war. It’s 90 minutes of non-stop energy mixed with moments of stillness and quietude.
