The Sleepover is a great film, with great acting. I especially liked Kevin Costner. He was a great actor playing a character who is so real, yet still keeps a lot of mystery surrounding him, which made him more believable. He played the role of Clancy very well. Also, the script was really well written and the actors were able to match each other and bring the character's personalities to life.
