Story


An adaptation of Eleanor Henderson's 2011 novel set in 1980s New York City in the age of CBGB, yuppies and gentrification that culminated in 1988's Tompkins Square Park riots.

It follows Vermont teenager Jude, who moves in with his hippie dad in NYC after his best friend Teddy overdoses. There he falls in with the no drugs, no sex, no meat straight-edge hardcore punk scene of the East Village. And there is Eliza (Steinfeld) who becomes pregnant with Teddy's child and leans on his brother Johnny and Jude for support.
