Ryder is quite good, but the movie is too slow and never really comes through.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Small Ohio town goes berserk anticipating return of sexy and mysterious hometown girl Roxy Carmichael, who's been away in Hollywood living a life of luxury. Teenage beatnik Ryder--moody, brilliant, alienated, intuitive, and adopted--starts fantasizing that Roxy is actually her mother. Flat, disjointed satiric comedy with Ryder the sole bright spot.
