The review of this Movie prepared by Christopher Bracey

A group of young twentysomethings' evening ritual of drinking, smoking, and experimentation with sex and philosophical musings is interrupted when a now- famous friend from high school comes to visit. Friendships and flings are created; as well as extinguished, lives are broken, and begun, and the lives of a group of young adults are changed in a matter of hours.
The review of this Movie prepared by Mme. Marie

Suburbia is a sometimes very dark portrait of a group of losers inhabiting a 7/11 parking lot in Burnsville, USA. Jeff (Ribisi) seems to be the leader of the group, and is the only one who tries to justify their responsibility-free lifestyle. On this particular night, Pony (Bartok), a guy they knew from high school who has become a famous rock star, is coming back to his home town, and it is around this event that most of the action takes place.
