Two Los Angeles high school students from opposite ends of the social spectrum fall for each other in Touchstone Pictures' provocative and sexy teen drama, CRAZY/BEAUTIFUL.
Nicole Oakley (Kirsten Dunst) is the troubled 17 year-old daughter of a wealthy Congressman (Bruce Davison), and attends public school in the upscale seaside community of Pacific Palisades, California. As an act of defiance, she makes a play for the attentions of handsome Latino Carlos Nunez (Jay Hernandez), a focused, straight-A student, who endures a two-hour bus ride each morning from East LA to attend the more prestigious school in Nicole's exclusive suburb.
While Nicole's friends and family forecast doom for their relationship, her rebellious flirtation soon develops into true romance. However, her self-destructive tendencies threaten Carlos' ambitions, leading to an emotional and climactic confrontation.
CRAZY/BEAUTIFUL is a testament to the power and intensity of first love, and reveals how, in coming together, two young but damaged souls can heal one another.
