Synopsis

Have you seen Caroline Harper? She has disappeared from her small town in Illinois after a night out. Her disappearance overturns a tidy microcosm and highlights the inconsistencies of authority figures to the point where child and parent roles seem reversed. As lost and eccentric as they may seem, teenage herds can sometimes be a thousand times more rational than their broken parents, who seem unmoved by the violence they inflict and that is inflicted on them.

Jennifer Reeder signs a fine and hypnotising teen movie, injecting us with a welcome feminist rage thanks to her scathing, quirky and pop tones.
