The Wackness

It’s the long hot summer of 1994. The New York streets echo with hip hop beats, the aroma of marijuana penetrates every corner, the newly elected Mayor Guiliani has just imposed strict measures on public morals and Luke is determined to spend his last summer before college selling weed and trying to get laid with a client’s daughter. Meanwhile, the world as he knows it is about to change for ever. A refreshing, upbeat coming-of-age tale from director Jonathan Levine. Audience Award at Sundance.
