In 1982, on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, the wealthy, articulate pot-smoking teenagers who were small children in the ’60s have emerged as young adults in a country that has just resoundingly rejected everything they were brought up to believe in. The very last wave of New York City’s ’60s-style Liberalism has come of age-and there’s nowhere left to go. In meticulous, hilarious, and agonizing detail, This Is Our Youth follows forty-eight hours of three very lost young souls in the big city at the dawn of the Reagan Era.
