The Young Unknowns

Genre: Drama; Starring: Devon Gummersall, Arly Jover, Eion Bailey, Leslie Bibb; Director: Catherine Jelski; Author: Catherine Jelski; Runtime (in minutes): 87; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Indican Pictures

There’s a shocking, casual quality to the self-destructive narcissism of the pretty, petty kids squandering their lives in the L.A. sunshine of this raw and potent feature debut. The film says nothing new about parental negligence among the rich and name-dropping, but it speaks in an impressively confident, dispassionate, insider’s voice.
