Being selected for the Cannes Film Festival was just the first step for director/producer/scenarist/editor Seidelman’s gritty and witty first feature—scripted by Peter Askin and Ron Nyswaner—becoming an era-defining independent film. Susan Berman has fled New Jersey for the punk music scene of an utterly un-gentrified East Village, evincing more attitude than talent as she takes rather than gives. Richard Hell costars and is heard on the soundtrack with The Voidoids.
