Forget everything you thought you knew about higher education. Academy Award-winning writer/director Roger Avary masterfully takes you back to school and drops you in the middle of the drugged-out, sexed-up lives of some of Camden College's most disaffected students. Meet Sean Bateman (James Van Der Beek), a womanizing drug dealer whose quest for connection brings him face to face with Lauren (Shannyn Sossamon), a sensitive virgin looking for love but saving herself for the much sought-after Victor (KipPardue). All the while, Paul Denton (Ian Somerhalder) wants to make a connection of his own...with Sean. This darkly funny satire of life, love and the pursuit of social debauchery is based on the best-selling novel by Bret Easton Ellis.
