The entire cast is great in this film, but I love Thora Birch and Steve Buscemi especially. They have this awesome quirky chemistry that really clicks.
The piano theme is so beautiful <3
Of a brand of comedy I would call "pathetic", which is not to say it isn't funny, just that you laugh at the characters' patheticness. Excellent examination of suburban dullness and what people do to get out of it. At times surreal, it rewards the patient viewer.
