    Greg Mottola—who debuted with The Daytrippers (1996), moved into TV, and recently made a big-screen comeback directing Superbad for Judd Apatow—tries his hand at a Cameron Crowe-style nostalgia piece, set in 80s Pittsburgh and chock-full of tunes by the Replacements, Husker Du, etc. Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) plays a college grad whose plans to tear around Europe all summer and start graduate studies at Columbia University in the fall are derailed by his father's professional downfall; instead, he spends the summer working various game booths at a rundown amusement park, surrounded by hard-partying freaks (among them Martin Starr) and coveting coworker Kristen Stewart (Twilight). more...
