Storyline

Welcome to Trenton, New Jersey, a post-industrial wasteland of abandoned factories, neglected row houses and urban decay. Trenton is a relic of America's once-thriving manufacturing economy, the kind of city most of us have long since forgotten. But for Fred Zara, a 30-something family man living an average suburban life near downtown Orlando, it's not so easy a place to forget. Growing up in Trenton in the mid-1980s, Fred went by the name of Fred Fatal, played drums in a punk-rock band called Prisoners of War, and was filled with so much teen angst that he managed to get himself kicked out of high school before reaching the 10th grade. "Average Community" follows Fred on a 900-mile journey back to his hometown to confront his troubled past, and the troubled people in it, in the hopes of understanding how the person he was made him into the person he is.

Treton Makes, The World Takes
4 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie in a record store in New Jersey...

This is a very touching movie about punk rock kids from Trenton, NJ. Sound like an paradox? Well director Fred Zara pulls it off brilliantly.

The plot follows Fred on a trip back to his home town where he meets up with old punk rock friends he hasn't seen in 20 years. A lot can happen in 20 years and this movie shows it. Great stories, great charters & a great heart felt flick!

They just don't make movies with this much feeling anymore. It's a must see, if you can find it!!!!!!!
