Details

Adapted from the novel Don't Look and It Won t Hurt by Richard Peck, Allison Anders (Grace of My Heart) caused a sensation at the 1991 Berlin International Film Festival with this masterfully crafted tale of a young woman trying to find love while struggling to bring up her two daughters.

Abandoned by her husband, Nora (Brooke Adams, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Stuff) waitresses to keep her head above water while raising two teenagers in a small town New Mexico trailer park. Beautiful and rebellious, Trudi (Ione Skye, Wayne s World, Zodiac) quits school to work alongside her mother, while her sister Shade (Fairuza Balk, The Craft, American History X) whittles away her time watching old movie matinees. Their life is turned on its head when Trudi finds that she has fallen pregnant after a string of casual relationships and the girls' absent father returns with hopes of mending the relationships he broke when he left.

A wonderfully engaging story of the woes of teenagers reaching adulthood, Gas Food Lodging is a distinctly American portrayal of a mother trying to raise two wayward teens with growing pains, who are learning about love, life and each other. This director-approved restoration finally affords this 90s indie classic the Blu-ray treatment it deserves.

Features a great score by J. Mascis of Dinosaur Jr, who also makes an appearance.
