In the vein of Juno and Donnie Darko, talented new writer/director Michael Goldbach navigates small town teenage angst through the eyes of the clever new kid in town: Caroline Wexler, played with smoldering sensuality by Kat Dennings. Caroline gazes through the smoke emitting from an incessant industrial fire in the small town she and her single dad must now call home: a serial killer is on the loose, as are dozens of stoner classmates, with whom she has nothing in common, to the chagrin of her new biggest fan, Thurston Goldberg. She must to endure this backwater for one year but what on earth will she do here? Enter Mr. Anderson (Josh Lucas), dishy high school English teacher. Suddenly, the temperature is rising…

Mr. Anderson’s noble resolve lasts a nanosecond before he and Caroline are enmeshed in an affair. Equally in awe of her savvy and insight, he solicits her feedback on his novel-–which exposes the throng of infantile insecurities lurking behind his macho swagger. Soon, Thurston Goldberg may be a contender for Caroline’s affections, despite the fact that his annoyingly eager to please mother (Andie MacDowell) is now dating her father…
