Troy (Jacob Wysocki) has been medicating himself with food since his mother died. His father (Billy Campbell), a tough ex-marine, is worried about the friend he’s made in Marcus (Matt O’Leary), a junkie that’s using Troy for room and board in exchange for a promise to join his punk band.
The harsh dynamics of high school life are well-represented in this charming directorial debut from Matthew Lillard. Go see it—you’ll laugh a lot!
