  • A brilliant commentary on the restlessness of America's youth. By trying to keep the "fun" out of New Grenada, the parents are only adding fuel to the fire. When a misunderstanding causes the death of a mischievous, yet harmless, teenager, the students rebel, inciting a riot that the parents and authorities are unable to control. The screen debut of the then unknown Dillon, with a soundtrack (The Ramones, Cheap Trick) that adds even more energy and power to an already impassioned, tightly-woven script.
