Directed by Tom DiCillo • 1991 • United States
Starring Brad Pitt, Calvin Levels, Catherine Keener
The spirit of rockabilly lives on in Tom DiCillo’s offbeat debut, which features a winning performance from Brad Pitt in one of his first leading roles. He stars as the titular wannabe rock star with an immense, 1950s-style pompadour and attitude to match. But will this cool-cat dreamer’s relationship with a sensible young woman (Catherine Keener) teach him that there’s more to life than his coveted pair of black suede shoes?
