Abstract:

"Lensed in 23 days in the prototypical campus community of Ann Arbor, Mich., first feature by young writer/director Steve Chbosky willingly assumes the burden of trying to explain his generation's aimlessness and resentfulness of the generations that preceded it, namely the '60s-'70s hippies and the '80s yuppies. ... Action is set in motion when nominal lead Duncan ..., a withdrawn, pensive student of human nature, is picked up hitchhiking by wildman Toad ..., a drug-loving '60s throwback. ... Arriving in Ann Arbor, they invade the household of Toad's sister Jenny ..., an aspiring singer/songwriter who lives with the insufferable yuppie law student Calvin ... and serves java at the local espresso hangout with Squeeze ..., the ultra-agreeable girlfriend of an artist, Hank ..., with a permanent creative block. Acting as a sort of Greek chorus is campus radio deejay Julian ..., who uses his nocturnal platform to rail at the '60s as 'nothing more than a bad movie with a great soundtrack' and take potshots at those of his own generation who subscribe to politically correct cant. Along the way, the irrepressible Toad beds a number of women and manages to sandwich in an embarrassing piece of performance art, while Duncan slowly gets something going with Jenny"--Variety review by Todd McCarthy, February 6, 1995.
