Set against the backdrop of mile roads, neighborhood blocks, abandoned factories and lakes which make up Metro-Detroit, this story follows four young people as they search for love and adventure on the last night of summer. Maggie, Rob, Claudia and Scott cross paths as they explore the suburban wonderland chasing first kisses, elusive crushes, popularity and parties. They are looking for the iconic teenage experience, but instead they discover the quiet moments that will later become the part of their youth that they look back on with nostalgia. –Semaine de la Critique
The magnetic fields song during the end almost made up for this shit movie. I like the timeless quality and how every character seemed to play into this common mythology of suburban lifestyle but it just wasn't compelling and the story was pretty redundant. Too many scenes of awkward glances from teen with crushes.
