Synopsis

“Hartley’s second feature begins with a stunning revelation from Maria (Shelly), a ditzy Long Island high school student and mother-to-be. The parental fallout from this disclosure has fatal consequences on the home front and sets Maria on an oblique course of self-discovery by way of an abortion clinic and the local convenience store. Midway through her journey, she meets Matthew (Donovan), an enigmatic, chain-smoking computer technician who lives at home with his obsessive-compulsive father and keeps a live grenade in his pocket. Somehow, in the Hartley scheme of things, they make a near-perfect couple – even if their futures remain as indeterminate as the nature of their relationship.” – Harvard Film Archive
