Netflix Pick of the Week: Punk's Dead SLC Punk 2

slc punks dead

Seventeen years after James Merendino’s semi-autobiographical indie movie SLC Punk broke out as a cult favorite, the writer-director is back with another tale of rebellion and coming-of-age against the backdrop of Salt Lake City.

Ross, Penny and Crash, young... outsiders from different tribes, embark on a road trip to a huge punk show. Ross, 19, is the love child of Trish and Heroin Bob, who died before Ross was born. During their odyssey, and with the help of a healthy dose of drugs, alcohol and punk music, Ross shreds his darkly Gothic outlook and embraces life. His mother Trish, who raised Ross alone in her steam punk shop, discovers that he is in a crisis. She recruits his 'uncles,' Bob's old SLC gang, to help find him. When all collide at the concert, they are forced to deal with their unresolved relationships with Bob.
