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: Unlike so many movies in which a character changes in order to propel the plot forward, this one stops to follow up on the consequences of those changes.
Fresh: A gently stirring symphony about emotional transition filled with lovely musical passages and softly nuanced performances.
Fresh: Brave, funny leap into the abyss of adolescence.
Rotten: So no one would argue that Thumbsucker sucks. But the thing does seem just so indie-movie familiar.
