R | | Drama
A young man turns from drug addiction and petty crime to a life redeemed by a discovery of compassion.
The movie's title comes from a line in the Velvet Underground song "Heroin".
All these... weirdos, and me... getting a little better every day right in the middle of 'em. I had never known... I had never even imagined for a heartbeat that... there might be a place in the world for people like us.
The film takes place in the early 1970s. Outside the motel there's a car with an old, battered "D.A.R.E." bumpersticker. But the D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program was not founded until 1982.
