LESS THAN ZERO
1987, 20th Century Fox, 98 min, USA, Dir: Marek Kavievska

18-year-old Clay (Andrew McCarthy) returns home to Beverly Hills for the Christmas holiday, but is met by a rude awakening: His ex-girlfriend (Jami Gertz) has taken up with his former best friend (Robert Downey Jr.), who is living the fast life with copious amounts of cocaine and equally as much debt. A fascinating portrait of adrift rich kids on the uncertain, even dangerous precipice of adulthood, based on the novel by Bret Easton Ellis.
