Product Description:

This is a coming-of-age story about a young girl in 1970's Beverly Hills who must come to terms with her family's constantly changing residences as well as trying to control her budding sexuality. Marisa Tomei is a cousin who comes to visit, adding even more mayhem to the proceedings. Jenkins' debut obviously strikes a few personal chords, which elevates this above the usual indie-fare.
