Disturbing Behavior


1h 23m 1998

Brief Synopsis

The residents of Cradle Bay are living an idyllic small town existence. Or are they? After the suicide of his older brother, Steve Clark is uprooted by his parents and moved to the sunny enclave where the teenage success rate soars above the norm. No drunk driving accidents, no drug overdoses, no passionate suicides. In Cradle Bay, the teens are busy with wholesome activities like bake sales, community service and making the grade. But there's something unnatural about all that perfection. Resisting the lure of the "Blue Ribbons"--the town's picture perfect teens--Steve connects with outcasts Gavin and Rachel, who are equally suspicious of their peers' disturbing behavior. Dr. Caldicott, the school psychiatrist, has convinced the parents of Cradle Bay that a "Stepford-like" surgical procedure is the answer to their teenagers' nasty habits and rebellious behavior. And Steve's parents are just a meeting away from agreement.
