Newly Restored. This remarkable 1985 coming-of-age story stars Laura Dern in a breakthrough performance as a rebellious teenage girl – bored with her lower-middle-class suburban existence – who relishes every opportunity to meet cute boys. When a charismatic but creepy older stranger, played by Treat Williams, pushes her boundaries to the breaking point, she must face the world and her place in it.

Based on a Joyce Carol Oates story, SMOOTH TALK is directed with great sensitivity by Joyce Chopra, who fills in some of the gender-blind blanks of the ’80s teen movie, and deploys a Hitchcockian register of suspense as the two principals face off.

The New Yorker’s Richard Brody says, “The film’s power is enormous throughout; spare means (long-held close-ups, a four-minute take of sisterly confessions) evoke a drama that seems to have been filmed holding its breath.”
