Seventeen-year-old Caroline (Kat Dennings of THE 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN, NICK AND NORAH'S INFINITE PLAYLIST) is facing a teenager’s nightmare: her widowed father has moved them from the city to a tiny town in the middle of nowhere where the major tourist attraction is an industrial fire that seems destined to burn forever. Concocting new ways of getting high is a major hobby for most of Caroline’s classmates, including the lovelorn Thurston (Reece Thompson of DREAMCATCHER, THE SANDLOT 2), who falls for Caroline the minute he lays eyes on her. Almost immediately, Caroline finds herself entangled in a love triangle between Thurston and her high-school teacher (Josh Lucas of SWEET HOME ALABAMA, A BEAUTIFUL MIND).

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "Daydream Nation" rolls elements of "Juno," "American Beauty," "Donnie Darko" and "Twin Peaks" into a potent blunt.
Fresh: Charged with alternating currents of teen angst, sardonic wit, nervous dread and impudent sensuality, Daydream Nation suggests Juno as reimagined by David Lynch, or a funnier, sunnier Donnie Darko.
Rotten: A fitfully engaging effort that is most successful as a performance piece for actors Kat Dennings and Reece Thompson.
Fresh: Goldbach fills the story with too many distractions, but Dennings, known for "Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist," is feline and fun.
Amazing film! Seriously was one of the best films of the year! And the soundtrack was soo good
Loved the cast and plot and Caroline was just captivating and witty. Not Juno by any measure but a great movie to watch!
