Paper Boys is an exploration of the world of young door-to-door newspaper salesmen who are closer than most families. An ensemble piece, the film explores a common problem for teens which most often feel unique but aren't. Sadly dysfunctional, non-traditional families are all too common. Add to this violence, psychological abuse, confusion over sexuality and a fierce awareness of ones own economic standing, the main character turns to drugs and finds himself in a tailspin while his friends have no idea how to handle it.
False bravado, hyper-sexuality and occasional homo-eroticism, amplified by drugs and painful circumstances, gives us a recipe for rich juxtaposition of comedy and potential tragedy. The soundtrack creates a relentless ride which leaves one emotionally exhausted from laughter and tears.
