Cherry Bomb teenagers Luke (Sheehan), Malachy (Grint) and Michelle (Nixon) as they embark on a wild weekend of drinking, drugs, shop-lifting and stealing cars. But what starts out as a game turns deadly serious when the three discover that they can't get off the wild ride they've set in motion.
And the more simple explanation from Wikipedia:
With their exams over, best friends Malachy and Luke are out to have one hell of a summer. However, the arrival of Michelle, a captivating but troubled beauty, tests their friendship to the limit as she encourages the two boys to carry out increasingly dangerous and illegal deeds in the battle for her affections - with fatal consequences.
Now, aside from all the racy language in those summaries, they make the story sound sort of... like something I've maybe seen before? Like a more violent The Dreamers, but not really. It definitely sounds like things you've seen or heard of before. It has even a small Y Tu Mama Tambien-esque quality to it.
I want to see it. I have this giant compulsion, and urge, and etc. to see it. And I don't even know exactly why.
