Jim Jarmusch's black and white indie hit won the Caméra d'Or for Best First Feature at Cannes and Special Jury Recognition at Sundance 1984. Willie (Lurie) is a New York hipster of Hungarian origin. When his relatives ask him to look after his 16-year-old cousin, Eva (Eszter Balint), he reluctantly agrees. Initially hostile to one another, it isn't long before the cousins develop an affectionate bond, but after ten days Eva leaves to stay with her Aunt Lotte (Cecillia Stark). A year later Willie and his friend Eddie (Richard Edson) head off to Cleveland to visit the two women . . . ★★★★ "A classic that captures perfectly the life of a drifter in New York" - Steve Beard, Empire
