Synopsis by Mark Deming

Fate takes a tragic turn as six kids look for something to do in this independent coming-of-age drama. Mark (Michael Albanese) is a teenager growing up in suburban Connecticut; he's not especially close to his parents and he tries to bond with his classmates by bossing them around. One night, with nothing much going on, Mark and his friends, Sean (Karl Giant) and Ken (Ken Miles), decide to head out in Mark's car to do some partying and look for girls, with each boy giving his folks the excuse that they'll be sleeping over at a friend's house. Along the way, they pick up Brooke (Heather Casey), Mark's pretty but straight-laced sometimes-girlfriend; Brooke's younger sister, Anne (Shannon Berry); and Anne's quiet friend, Megan (Megan Shand). Over the course of the evening, they're forced to confront Mark's desire to control his friends' lives and their own youthful confusion and frustration. Sleepover also features original songs by the late singer and songwriter Jeff Buckley.
