Directed by Joyce Chopra | 1985

With Laura Dern, Treat Williams, Mary Kay Place

What starts as a seemingly routine coming-of-age drama reveals itself to be something far darker and more frighteningly ambiguous as a 15-year-old girl (a remarkable Laura Dern), just beginning to explore her sexuality, has a life-altering encounter with a disturbing stranger. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, Smooth Talk was adapted from Joyce Carol Oates’ classic short story Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?, itself inspired by the notorious Pied Piper of Tucson murders.
