Official selection of the 1982 Toronto International Film Festival.
A restless and abrasive young woman eschews the affections of a sensitive young portrait artist, preferring to chase singers in a misguided desire for fame and fortune in New York's Greenwich Village. Featuring a soundtrack by New Wave icons the Feelies, Susan Seidelman's first feature film is a classic look at the 1980s New York punk scene.

An interesting portrait of the indifference of youth in 1980s grimy, Greenwich Village.
Director Susan Seidelman helmed what was to be was the first American independent film invited to compete for the Palme D'or at the 1982 Cannes Film Festival.
From "Breakfast at Tiffany's" to Lena Dunham's "Tiny Furniture," the basic premise of a young woman struggling to make it in New York is still ruthlessly on point.
Also stars punk rock legend Richard Hell.
