"All I Want" is a coming-of-age film directed by Jeffrey Porter. Featuring a potent cast of stars, the film follows the story of James Dillon (Elijah Wood), a 17-year old whose decision to drop out of college on the first day leads to a new life in a run-down apartment building. Surrounded by a strange new group of neighbors, James retreats into a world of his own imagination as he writes to his absentee father and fends off an alcoholic and often abusive mom.
Mandy Moore plays Lisa, a twenty-something struggling actress with an eye for James. Eager to seduce the naive teen, Lisa engulfs her captivated-neighbor as the pair embark on a brief yet highly-charged affair. A vapid yet appealing young woman, Mandy is one of two neighbors who ultimately offer James his first sense of adult happiness and heartbreak as she flits and flirts in and out of his life.
Other co-stars include Franka Potente, Elizabeth Perkins, and Deborah Harry. Written by Charles Kephart, "All I Want" is a thought-proviking film founded on the innocence of youth with plenty of room for imperfection and acceptance.
