  • "Suburbia" is director Penelope Spheeris's study of the Los Angeles punk rock scene in the early 1980s. The story focuses on a disenchanted teenager named Evan who falls in with "The Rejected - TRs," a group of punks who live as squatters in an abandoned shack by the side of the highway. Evan and his younger brother leave their broken home in an attempt to escape their alcoholic father. With the TRs, the boys find companionship and a strange kind of harmony. But this peaceful idyll comes to an end, when a local vigilante group decides that their neighborhood problems are the punks' fault and tries to drive the group out of the neighborhood.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Clear-eyed compassionate melodrama....A good genre film."
    New York Times

    "...A tough, somewhat compassionate look at the punk generation..."

    "At its best, SUBURBIA plays like an L.A. version of LOS OLVIDADOS, Luis Bunuel's 1950 classic about delinquent street kids in Mexico City." -- Grade: B+
