Directed by
Roger Avary

James van der Beek stars as Sean Bateman, a freshman at Camden College, who's in love with Lauren Hyde. She's waiting for her wastrel boyfriend Victor Johnson to come back from a trip around Europe, while Paul Denton, who used to date Lauren, is exploring his bisexual side with a crush on Sean. This smart romantic drama by Roger Avary uses flashbacks, split screens and time loops to tell their stories, which are based on a Brett Easton Ellis novel, and captures exactly the American Generation X of affected, self-centred teens, while managing to engage the viewer's interest and sympathies with them.
