Status Update

My friend Cat just put up the most amazing Facebook update. It goes:
We have a situation. The 17 year old boy across the street broke up with his girlfriend. She is heartbroken. The boy will not take her calls. She has gone on a hunger strike. She has been standing in MY driveway staring at his house on and off.
It's like The Virgin Suicides meets an 80s-era John Cusack movie all at once.

UPDATE: Cat just told me the girl's name is SLOANE. Is that the most perfect name for this scenario or what? Also, she is Japanese. So now this movie in my head (a) got really dark and ominous and will possibly play out like a horror movie I don't understand and (b) got subtitles.
