RIVER’S EDGE

“The 1987 film River’s Edge was a film that shocked audiences and critics alike with its depiction of aimless teenagers in a dead-end town….A fictionalized account of a 1981 murder case in Milpitas, California, in which 16-year-old Anthony Jacques Broussard strangled 14-year-old Marcy Conrad and dumped her body near the foothills outside of town….The kids in River’s Edge stood in direct contrast to the shiny, plastic teenagers that movie audiences were accustomed to seeing in the mid-to-late 1980s…” (Matt Gilligan, Vice)
