Bradey Corbet (Lackey) is convinced that he was abducted by aliens when he was a child and Neil McCormick (Gordon-Levitt) is an angry, promiscuous gay hustler. Slowly but surely the two young men's paths begin to cross but their connection to each other is much deeper than they originally felt. Writer/director Gregg Araki's measured, tender take on Scott Heim's ethereally poetic novel boasts compelling performances all round and a great soundtrack (by Cocteau Twins' Robin Guthrie and composer Harold Budd). This is a disturbingly memorable tale of UFOs, false memory syndrome and the blemish of youth.
