Synopsis

All Tommy wants from life is what everyone else has—a job, a girl, a good time. But the harder he tries, the worse things get. And the more time he spends at Trees Lounge, his Long Island neighborhood bar, the more involved he gets with the lives of the colorful characters he meets there.

Our take

Steve Buscemi’s first feature as a director is an overlooked indie soaked in alcohol and nihilistic humor, mirroring its protagonist’s unique blend of melancholy and comedy. Appearances by Chloë Sevigny, Samuel L. Jackson, and Seymour Cassel make Trees Lounge an enviable ’90s hangout spot.
