One of director Joel Schumacher's biggest and most enduring successes is "St. Elmo's Fire," and he turns his attention to another ultramodern group of young people in this drama.

Chace Crawford ("Gossip Girl") is the first among equals as a teenager who makes a steady income by peddling drugs to a privileged clientele. Complications arise when his cousin runs into trouble. Emma Roberts, Rory Culkin, Erik Per Sullivan ("Malcolm in the Middle") and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson also star; Kiefer Sutherland narrates. *** (R: AS, P, N, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
