Anne Hathaway and Bijou Phillips star in this searing, contemporary drama that follows a group of rich suburban teenagers who become infatuated with the "gangsta" culture. Their journey to the underworld of East Los Angeles takes a frightening turn when the kids come up against a gang of Latino drug dealers. Although the movie was not well received, Hathaway gives a solid, fearless performance and gives us her best nudity to date. Also stars Freddy Rodriguez, Shiri Appleby, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Alexis Dziena.
