In a decade where Indies thrived this film reaches for a higher understanding of the self at several different stages of life. A certain sophistication that the characters strive for ultimately becomes their downfall. A coming-of-age story with a certain hostility that I haven't seen since I first watched American Beauty. Very well done.
