Dennis is a quietly handsome and bookish college student. His older brother, Bill, is a rough ladies’ man and thief. Thrown together to search for their long-lost dad, they confront their expectations of each other, themselves, and their attitudes towards women.
A road movie with a twist, the final film in Hal Hartley’s Long Island Trilogy finds strangeness and chic ennui beneath icons of Americana. Brace yourself for one of the coolest dance sequences in cinema, a Bande à part homage set to the adrenaline-pumping guitar riffs of Sonic Youth’s Kool Thing!
