Peaceful suburbia is not all it’s cracked up to be in this bleak assessment of what lies behind the white picket fences. When the neighbourhood drug dealer hangs himself in his bedroom, his friend Dean (Jamie Bell) is devastated.

When Dean’s classmates want to get their hands on the dead dealer’s stash, they kidnap who they believe to be Dean’s younger brother in order to pressure him into revealing the source of the drugs. However, the hapless kidnappers have mistakenly seized the son of a local cop. Also starring Glenn Close, Rory Culkin, William Fichtner and Ralph Fiennes.
