Punk rock is just a bunch of posers calling other people posers in an attempt to be less of a poser than the other posers. The harder you want to not be a poser the more of a poser you become. Anyway in high school I got called a poser by some other poser and that was my takeaway.
Movie is pretty good. Diane Lane is delightful. Laura Dern still proves that she came out of the womb a middle aged woman as she was only twelve when this filmed and almost looks like an adult.
