Ordinary People (1980): review: 8/10

The troubled son of wealthy Illinois family consults a psychiatrist and starts a relationship with a girl with a mullet hairdo and thick socks.

Featuring The Psychiatrist as Detective (mother is The Culprit, of course): the piece is sympathetically filmed and intelligently acted, indeed is often quite moving, and seems to prefigure more recent slacker films such as "Garden State".
