Plot On a day out at the beach, 18 year-old
Tobe (Wood) picks up gentle drifter Harlan
(Norton). As their relationship develops, it
becomes clear his ingratiating good manners
and obsession with being a cowboy hide a deeply troubled mind. But it is only her stepfather Wade (Morse) who can see through him.Verdict Never has the term ‘American Independent’ so obviously been code for ‘wholly miserable experience’.
