Jason Biggs (doomed to have some variation of the words 'pie-botherer' in every article ever written about him thanks to the American Pie movies) makes a successful leap from comedy to drama here.
While there's an enjoyable subversive atmosphere, the story simply isn't sharp enough to mean much of anything
