Dir. Adam Rehmeier
Rating: [R16] Cruelty, drug use, sexual material & offensive language
Genres: Comedy / Independent


“Emily Skegg's suburban nerd and Kyle Gallner's runaway rocker work a treat in this abrasively funny 90s throwback.”~The Guardian

Aroview: Kyle Gallner and Emily Skeggs lend plenty of charisma to this stroppy-sweet black comedy as an on-the-lam punk rocker and an awkward young woman who is secretly obsessed with his band.

Think "Welcome to the Dollhouse" meets "Napoleon Dynamite", it's a brazen and often hilarious portrait of (ironic) toxic masculinity that gives way to a sweet love story between two misfits. It might play it all straight from the American indie movie playbook, but has an absolute blast while doing so.
