Behind its substantial charm and light touch is a movie that's more morbid, alienated, and personal than it lets on.

Besides being a stirring portrait of a youth culture in crisis, the film is very charming and accessible - especially for anyone that's experienced teen alienation...at once a snapshot in time and a timeless piece of cinema.
