"I just wanna be in a swimming pool, eating tacos and signing autographs—that's all.” Early 1980s Lower East Side New York is vividly rendered in the debut feature from Susan Seidelman (DESPERATELY SEEKING SUSAN), the first American independent film to compete for the Palme d’Or at Cannes. The movie follows a self-absorbed New Jersey girl (Susan Berman) who moves to Manhattan determined to break into the punk music scene. Richard Hell co-stars, music by The Feelies.
