Shy, sheltered teen Mercer (Pucci) goes looking for himself in all the wrong places in this slight indie drama. Still mourning his recently deceased mother, the 19-year-old hits the road in a stolen car, hoping to locate his estranged older half brother and crossing paths with a variety of standard-issue eccentrics—neohippies, an S&M pornographer, white-trash thugs, a slutty nymphet (Malone)—while falling for the hot car’s owner (Deschanel) via cell phone. It’s cute, familiar and forgettable, except for having spawned the indie-pop duo She & Him, made up of Deschanel and M. Ward, who composed the film’s original music.
