Synopsis

" . . . Clear-eyed, compassionate melodrama . . . A good genre film." –Vincent Canby, The New York Times

" . . . A tough, somewhat compassionate look at the punk generation . . . " –Variety

Suburbia is director Penelope Spheeris's study of the Los Angeles punk rock scene in the early 1980s. Evan and his younger brother leave their broken home in an attempt to escape their alcoholic mother. They fall in with "The Rejected" (aka T.R.), a group of punks who live as squatters in an abandoned home by the side of the highway. With T.R., the boys find a new family. But their newfound family will be tested when they become the target of "Citizens Against Crime," a group of unhappy suburbanites.

Why We Love It

An essential entry in early-‘80s independent American cinema, Suburbia receives a radical Blu-ray upgrade from Shout! Factory, along with a pair of commentaries worth hearing in full. Clayton Dillard, Slantmagazine.com

“The new 4K scan that the folks at Shout! Factory has done here proves to be worth the effort. It’s made this old punk happy to see this film looking as good as it can.” Justin Slauss, highdefdiscnews.com
