Plot – Spoilers:
Set in an Ohio town a few years after a destructive tornado, Gummo captures the despondent lives of some of the residents, particularly the teenagers.

Tummler and Solomon are friends, more importantly, business partners – they kill cats and sell them. There isn’t much else of a plot. Instead, through short vignettes we get a sense of the mood in the town. There are scenes of animal cruelty, underage sexual activity including Chloe Sevigny who plays the oldest teen sister kissing a young mute in a bunny hat and Solomon having a meal while in a dirty tub.

Depending on your personal experiences, you will see the characters in Gummo as pathetic lowlifes or feel a sense of empathy and sympathy for them.
