Connie Wyatt (Laura Dern) is visiting Northern California with her family. At age 15 she's just beginning to come to terms with her sexuality, and eagerly seeks her first experience with a man. This is compounded by issues of self-esteem, mainly due to a mother who constantly praises her sister, while belittling Connie.
When Connie meets Arnold Friend (Treat Williams) in his sports car, his coolness overshadows his darkness, and the teenager takes a ride with him. By the day's end she regrets her decision.
Smooth Talk was awarded the Grand Jury Prize at the 1986 Sundance Film Festival.
