At seventeen things are not always as they seem. Anchor Bay Entertainment releases a defiantly different look at teenage life. Daydream Nation, starring Kat Dennings and Josh Lucas, is, much like the music that inspired it, an alternative gem.
Seventeen-year-old Caroline Wexler (Dennings, Thor, Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist,) is facing a teenager’s nightmare: her widowed father has moved them from the big city to a tiny town in the middle of nowhere. When Caroline realizes she has nothing in common with the burnout losers in her new school she pursues the one person with who excites her interest – her handsome young teacher, Mr. Anderson (Lucas, Sweet Home Alabama). A bizarre love triangle ensues between Caroline, Mr. Anderson, and a sweet, but troubled classmate (Reece Thompson, Dream Catcher). Featuring a hit indie soundtrack in this mash-up of the bizarre and the beautiful, Daydream Nation is a coming-of-age story for the 21st century.
