The Prince of Pennsylvania (1988)

R 10/10/1988 (US) DramaComedy 1h 27m

He's looking for love, happiness, wisdom, truth and the meaning of life. All by next Thursday.


Set in a remote Pennsylvania coal-mining town, this off-beat comedy follows the relationship between Carla, a hippie woman, and Rupert, a young punk rocker who feels like a pariah. Hoping to leave their current lives behind, the two conspire to kidnap Rupert's father and hold him for ransom.
