The Greatest Teen Rebellion Movie Ever Made!

The protagonists of Over the Edge are the teen-aged offspring of the residents of a planned suburban community out in the desert of New Grenada. This bland little town has been designed with conformity in mind, and with no thought of making the kids’ lives worth living. Even worse, there is very little opportunity for any of the teens to grow “out” of the community and live elsewhere. Consequently, the kids rebel by drinking themselves sick, dealing in drugs, and indulging in deadly violence. Inasmuch as the local cops are predisposed to beat the teens into submission, the kids retaliate by directing their frustrations at the Law; the results are tragic, to be sure, but in no way predictable. Over the Edge struck as sensitive a nerve with young 1970s moviegoers as ‘Rebel Without a Cause’ did with their 1950s ancestors. Matt Dillon made his screen debut in Over the Edge, distinguishing himself in a strong ensemble cast that included Vincent Spano, Andy Romano and Ellen Geer. “Terrific. One of the best movies to date about the generation gap. Script, photography and performances are all top-notch.” – TIME OUT FILM GUIDE
