Watch Kicking and Screaming
- 1 hr 36 min
This film from director Noah Baumbach stars Carlos Jacott, Josh Hamilton and Chris Eigeman as recent college graduates who are struggling to cope with life in the real world. The film was shot at Occidental College and features performances by Olivia D'Abo, Parker Posey and Eric Stoltz. Grover (Hamilton) is despondent when his girlfriend Jane (D'Abo) jets off to Prague, and he mopes around as his friends confront their own problems. Max (Eigeman) is a pretentious philosopher, Skippy (Jason Wiles) is a slacker, Otis (Jacott) is an out-of-touch engineer, and Chet (Stoltz) is a perennial student who serves as an example of what not to do with your life. The film is the debut of Baumbach, who went on to be one of his era's most critically acclaimed independent filmmakers.
