Written and directed by 27-year-old Gia Coppola (of the Hollywood Coppolas) and based on the short-story collection by James Franco (also of Hollywood), the teen-centered drama is basically a creative-writing exercise turned film-school exercise, polished to a moody, glossy sheen. There is lots of drinking, teen girls in their underwear, and stake-free pathos. The subtleties are too subtle and the shocking moments too easy. Rated R. 100 minutes. Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe. See review.
