Gone are the days of the Sex, Drugs & Rock’n’Roll generation portrayed by Bret Easton Ellis in “The Rules of Attraction.” The exaggerated cynicism and nihilism of the 90s generation have given way to a revolutionary Generation Z, already the driving force behind two social revolutions (#Metoo, #Blacklivesmatter), yet struggling to adapt to adult life.

The film’s plot is quite straightforward. A young woman leaves her small town to settle in New York. She is quickly dumped by her boyfriend and ends up cohabitating with a journalist who is too old for his age.
