Movie Info

Juliette Lewis is punk-rocker turned suburban mom Kelly, nostalgic for the life she no longer has and uncertain of a future where she doesn't yet fit in. 17-year-old Cal (newcomer Jonny Weston), is frustrated at his lack of control over the hand he's been dealt. When the two neighbors meet, they find in each other an unlikely but much-needed connection to the world. With Cybill Shepherd. (c) IFC
