Directed by Susan Seidelman | 1982

With Susan Berman, Brad Rijn, Richard Hell

A talentless but ruthlessly ambitious New Waver moves from Jersey to the East Village determined to make it big in the city’s punk scene—no matter who she has to use to get there. Featuring a supporting turn from punk godfather Richard Hell and a driving soundtrack by the Feelies, Susan Seidelman’s debut feature is an unflinchingly gritty time capsule of 1980s lower Manhattan that made history as the first American indie film screened in competition at Cannes.
