Kicking and Screaming

Kicking and Screaming (1995)

Declining to accompany his girlfriend (Olivia d'Abo) to Prague, Grover (Josh Hamilton) chooses instead to move in with other new college grads who can't quite break the gravitational pull of campus. Reluctant to step into adulthood yet, afraid they'll end up like bartender and professional student Chet (Eric Stoltz), the friends wrestle with leaving the past behind. Writer-director Noah Baumbach delivers a funny, honest look at postcollege angst.
My Two Cents: Though I had difficulty identifying with the characters, Baumbach captures the the "what now" uncertainty brought on by college graduation. This film resonated with me, but probably isn't for everyone.

NetFlix Rank: Liked It
IMDB Rank: 7/10
