The full-length 1989 debut from Hal Hartley (his early shorts justly made his name as an indie legend) is a smartly funny, angularly touching example of his pop-Godard technique. Rebellious teen Adrienne Shelly and enigmatic ex-con (and possible murderer) Robert Burke dare to fall in love as rumours abound in the Long Island setting. Edie Falco supports in this literate, limber love story.
