Telling Lies In America


(out of 5)

True-life drama written by Joe Eszterhas, inspired by his early years as an immigrant teen in America.  is great as the young Eszterhas, who finds himself growing up fast when he befriends bad influence  and ends up getting into serious trouble because of him. Solid direction and genuine period feel all contribute their part, plus is fantastic as an overworked small-town girl who seems to have run out of dreams.
