rated for 0 + years
A day and a night in the life of five teenagers in a dreary American suburb. Breathlessly and visually rough, the film revolves deals with a violent father, an escape into the army, drugdealing and drug-taking, casual sex. An episodes-film reminding of Magnolia. The blunt and brutal style captures disillusioned kids embarking on adulthood.
