Two emotionally scarred young people find both love and tragedy as they run away together in this drama. Marcy (Robin Tunney) and Seth (Henry Thomas) meet while shoplifting at the same department store; Seth is the son of an angry, abusive father and steals out of rebellion, while Marcy suffers from Tourette's Syndrome, which causes her to compulsively curse, flail about, and indulge in anti-social behavior. The two misfits find a common ground in each other, and they decide to hit the road.

The acting of central couple, Tunney and Thomas, is good, but the film can't find the balance between an intriguing character study and a chronicle of illness and its effects.
Though ostensibly honest in its depiction of Tourette's, those with Tourette's may take offense at the implication that they're psychos
Tunney...is often mesmerizing as the afflicted young woman. Niagara Niagara also boasts a fine soundtrack and was appealingly lensed in upstate New York.
