Rating: C+ -- So unexciting that it almost made me want to suck my thumb or whatever to get over sitting through such a heavy going and dull film. Full Review

3 stars out of 5 -- Pucci is an actor to watch: He rides this spellbinder without softening the truths that plague the thumbsucker in all of us.

[C]hock-full of original characters and details....THUMBSUCKER is a sly, quirky, even profound meditation on the impediments to survival in suburban America.

It's a startlingly assured film....Mills should be grateful to his actors...

[I]t has an absurdist worldview and some engaging performances, notably the lead.

Rating: 3/5 -- Mills, a former music video director, writes and directs with subtle clarity, bringing a refreshing sensibility to the archetypical tale in which a displaced teen comes of age in a confusing and banal environment.

Product Description:

Music-video director Mike Mills's feature-length debut, THUMBSUCKER, is an offbeat, unique film about the trials and tribulations of a relatively normal family living in Oregon. The black comedy stars Lou Pucci as Justin Cobb, a 17-year-old who still sucks his thumb, infuriating his tough father, Mike (Vincent D'Onofrio), a high-school football star who never made it to the pros because of a knee injury. Justin's mother, Audrey (Tilda Swinton), is a nurse who is developing an odd crush on TV actor Matt Schramm (Benjamin Bratt). Meanwhile, Justin becomes more interested in Rebecca (Kelli Garner) than arguing with his peers as a member of Mr. Geary's (Vince Vaughn) debate team. To rid Justin of his thumbsucking habit--as well as other weird things that begin happening after his Zen-like orthodontist, Perry Lyman (Keanu Reeves), hypnotizes him--he is put on medication to combat attention deficit disorder, which further complicates his life and his relationships with friends, family, and teachers. Pucci is magnificent in the title role, capturing just the right nuances in his portrayal of a troubled teenager. The rest of the cast is excellent as well, especially D'Onofrio as a father unable to show his emotions, Vaughn as a cool teacher, and Reeves as a wacked-out dentist. The Polyphonic Spree composed songs for the film, which is based on a novel by Walter Kirn.
