(USA, 2007, 97 minutes)
In 1994 NYC, a high school graduate who moonlights as a drug dealer falls in love with his classmate, the stepdaughter of a psychiatrist undergoing a midlife crisis. Unusually smart and surprisingly bittersweet coming-of-age comedy; the period side, however, is somewhat bewildering.
