Back in the 80’s they made a movie called “Less than Zero” I think. In it, the ‘hero’ kills himself. And magically, it caused all the other high school kids to come together and start getting along and life became utopia....
This is the crap Meryl Streep should be shrieking “What are we doing to our children!!!” about. -Glorifying suicide.
Less Than Zero is about 2 stupid rich college aged kids doing coke and, in the end, one dies of an overdose, bringing no-one together. This is played out in the confines of a love triangle. The movie is not meant to be, nor is it, uplifting in any way. In fact, the book it is based on is written by someone who lived the incredibly vapid, drug addled, existence depicted in the film.
I think you have the wrong film.
