Welcome to "Movie Trailer Tuesday - my weekly blog feature where I share movie/dvd recommendations by posting a quick blurb and movie trailer for you to check out.
What good movies have you recently watched? Feel free to share in the comments below...
This dark, coming-of-age story is full of family dysfunction, confusing relationships, and complicated decisions. After a personal tragedy, Jude goes to live with his weed-growing father in New York City. There, he gets involved with the "Straight Edge" scene (a form of punk rock where those involved abstain from drugs, alcohol, etc). When a close friend becomes pregnant, Jude takes an active role in helping her figure things out.
The movie is full of drug use and really heavy subject matter but underneath it all, you find likable characters who try to do the right things.
Ten Thousand Saints is definitely one for the grown-ups to watch. The flawed characters and the heartbreaking themes really stick with you.
Rated R and available on Netflix.
