Scott is a sensitive, disaffected teenager growing up in late 1970s suburban New York. Meanwhile his property-developer father is having an affair with a next-door-neighbour, whose slightly older daughter Scott is falling in love with. An outbreak of Lyme disease in the community and Scott's brother arriving home on army leave complicates matters further. Fans of American independent cinema will recognise the meandering tone and themes of familial alienation. A first-rate cast and a witty, plausible script, as well as a striking use of rock music on the soundtrack, makes this film reminiscent of that of executive producer Martin Scorsese.
