If you like quiet, thoughtful films, I very much recommend renting or buying the award-winning indy coming-of-age film Leaving Barstow, and not just because its producer is our old friend Madelon Smith. I've been carrying it around in my bag for a couple of weeks planning to see it on a plane, but ended up watching it in the serenity of my den while quaffing a couple of cold pale ales. The writer and lead actor, Kevin Sheridan, is going to have a great career. Here's a nice review on Amazon.
The link above takes you to the film's web site, where you can get a sense for the movie and see the awards it has won, and the link below (obviously) takes you to the page on Amazon.
