How to Ruin Lives

~ Less than a min read

Nobody Waved Goodbye

A vintage feature film about an angsty teen who rebels against his overbearing middle class parents, gets into trouble with the law after speeding in his father’s car, sees a psychiatrist, falls deeper into delinquency, fights with his girlfriend, and… The fashion and music may be dated, but the dialogue is eerily contemporary and realistic. Well-acted & directed, this is an excellent drama that won seven film awards. Complete info here.
