Alex (Nevins), a skateboarder, falls in with an older crowd at the local skate park and trespasses on a nearby railroad depot. While riding a freight train he is accosted by a security guard, and the resulting tussle leads to a shocking accident that haunts him.
Van Sant’s low-key, experimental high-school drama is an affecting rites-of-passage tale, told with bold style and quiet integrity.
