An unsolved murder at Portland's infamous Paranoid Park brings detectives to a local high school, propelling a young skater into a moral odyssey where he must not only deal with the pain and disconnect of adolescence but the consequences of his own actions. In Paranoid Park, Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, Elephant) melds the dreamy languor of his last few films with a page-turner of a plot.
