About the Movie

Meet Justin Cobb (Lou Pucci), a teenager who still sucks his thumb. Realizing it's totally disrupting his home, love and school love life, he allows his orthodontist (Keanu Reeves) to break him of the habit through hypnosis. Justin begins to experiment with prescription drugs, pot and sex as alternate means to overcome his anxieties and become "normal," never realizing normal is just a state of mind.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A smart, funny, sometimes lovely little film. – Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Although often amusing, Thumbsucker lacks the necessary bite. – Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A gently stirring symphony about emotional transition filled with lovely musical passages and softly nuanced performances. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: I have focused on Justin, but really the movie is equally about the adult characters, who all seem to have lacked adequate parenting themselves. We talk about the tragedy of children giving birth to children; maybe that can happen at any age. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010
