The title stands for Long Island Expressway — an area that anchors a wide variety of denizens. Mainly there’s a teenage kid who can’t get over the death of his mom. But the secondary character ends up being a surprisingly sympathetic pedophile played, with great nuance and depth, by Brian Cox. Nothing ever gets too out-of-hand, but stuff bordering on the taboo gets skirted enough times to make the less hardy viewer cringe.
