During a slow summer, a teenager avoids his girlfriend and comfortable suburban family life to cruise the Memphis streets, where he picks up a Vietnamese immigrant. With a vivid and granular evocation of its Southern locales, using nonprofessional actors and a laconic style, this is one of the finest American independent film debuts of the 1990s. (Aug to Sept ’97)
