A college student is torn between his friends' active-protest, anti-establishment mentality and the conservative values of his parents in this slow-moving drama. The film is leavened somewhat by a great soundtrack (Pixies, Throwing Muses, Minutemen) and appearances by Fred Schneider from the B-52's and X's John Doe.
