Alternately funny and disturbing satire about suburban kids who kidnap the wrong boy after intending to target the younger brother of the school loner (Jamie Bell) to compel the latter to get them the drugs they believe he can secure from the home of a schoolmate dealer who's just committed suicide. Arie Posin's searing indictment of aloof, disengaged parents, alienated youths and our drug-saturated society is overly simplistic, but brilliantly acted by Bell, Glenn Close, Ralph Fiennes and Allison Janney, and ends on a satisfyingly redemptive note. Profanity and rough language, crude expressions, underage drug use and smoking, brief violence with blood, a sexual situation with brief partial nudity and suicide. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
