Seattle: The grunge girl band "No Exits" is just about to get a record deal. At this time Jimmy is appearing again, the former boy-friend of the band guitarist Shelly. She had left him because his friend had raped her. But he doesn't know that - up to now. Shelly has fallen in love with the band singer Suzy in the meantime. But she still loves Jimmy, too. So she moves to him again, what Suzy doesn't like that all. Especially because she is becoming a feminist. The conflict is about to threaten the band... Written by

I got this film from Netflix and it was a nice surprise. I don't know what film the other poster saw, but it wasn't this one. Having spent time around the indie music scene for a number of years I can personally attest to the fact that this film is anything but naive.
It hits the nail right on the head. The music from obscure Ben Lee songs to Ani DiFranco are not only dead on (the film was shot back in the nineties)for the scene but the way the kids act - young and impulsive shows that the filmmakers knew their subjects and refused to make a film that imprinted the ideas and beliefs of 40 year old wannabe film critics.
The closest film I've seen to this one is probably Penelope Speeris' wonderful film Suburbia from back in the 80's.
