A truly harrowing, ferociously memorable look at suburban American life that one-ups Kids by dragging both teenagers and their parents into the glaring spotlight. Ken Park focuses on several teenagers and their tormented home lives. Shawn seems to be the most conventional. Tate is brimming with psychotic rage; Claude is habitually harassed by his brutish father and coddled, rather uncomfortably, by his enormously pregnant mother. Peaches looks after her devoutly religious father, but yearns for freedom.
