Summary Two friends graduate from high school and find life in the real world difficult. Becky sets her sights on Josh, on whom both girls have a crush, and their friendship is changed forever.
An idiosyncratic portrait of adolescent alienation. Set during the malaise-filled months following high-school graduation, the film follows the proud misfit Enid (Thora Birch), who confronts an uncertain future amid the cultural wasteland of consumerist America. As her cynicism becomes too much to bear even for her best friend, Rebecca (Scarlett Johansson), Enid finds herself drawn to an unlikely kindred spirit: a sad-sack record collector many years her senior (Steve Buscemi).
