A fresh take on the hard-boiled noir, this festival hit stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as an outsider teen-turned-stoic gumshoe after his ex-girl (Emilie de Ravin) turns up dead. Winner of the Special Jury Prize at Sundance for Originality of Vision, this hip-talking detective story tips its hat to Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler in a grainy, parallel universe that includes Lukas Haas as a drug dealer who lives with his mum.
