Middle of Nowhere
Directed by John Stockwell
From the director of Blue Crush comes MIDDLE OF NOWHERE, a witty, warm-hearted comedy about two precocious teens and their unusual families. A pair of co-workers at a small-town water park—restless troublemaker Dorian and the tightly wound Grace – form an unlikely bond when Dorian cooks up an illicit plan to earn big money. With no assistance from a flaky, free-spending mom and competition from a sexy younger sister, Grace needs all the help she can get if she’s going to make it to college.

Picked to watch this movie on a whim and was surprised by the simple plot yet superb acting Anton Yelstin, Ms Sarandon and the rest of the cast!
The cover is for the wrong movie of the same name. please correct! Very misleading.
A sad and touching movie, set in achingly familiar suburbia in the middle of nowhere, as the title says. Susan Sarandon does an excellent job of playing the narcissistic/sociopathic mother who feeds on her young.
Pretty good coming of age movie. Made me remember what it was like to be young and without a plan. Susan Sarandon did an excellent job playing a multilayered single parent, summed up with the two-word manifesto: nobody's perfect. The youthful stars of the film were capable and engaging, never once suggesting they were the producer's second choice.
