Summary
Alexandre Rockwell's offhandedly eccentric US Film Festival (**Sundance**) award winning debut feature follows a disabled teenager and his older adoptive sisters who, when pronounced by some protective-services bureaucrat to be "not our idea of a normal family," shed their gloomy urban confines and set out for Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Rockwell gathers vitalizing details both grand and small but he is mostly inspired by singular characters who seem like real, mysterious human beings. "*A major film poem of the independent American film movement.*" - Ron Holloway, ***Variety***
