Kat Dennings is a teacher's pet...

Daydream Nation review

Thor scene-stealer Kat Dennings looks great and acts even better as a rebellious, tutor-seducing teen in a dead-end town where the only things to hit on are bongs or teacher Josh Lucas (Class assignment? Why Monica Lewinsky is her most admired historical figure...).

Debut writer/director Mike Goldbach inhales deeply and creates a surreal, sardonic high school comedy with acidic bite.

An ethereal soundtrack – dominated by Emily Haines but curiously lacking in Sonic Youth – gives the dreamy, druggy visuals haunting poignancy…
