Plot Synopsis:

The horrors of junior high are vividly recreated in this darkly comic tale of a painfully unhip seventh grade girl whose classmates' merciless taunting is only compounded by her dreary, middle-child home life. A hilarious, bittersweet black comedy from Todd Solondz, director of HAPPINESS, an equally bleak tale of the underbelly of grown-up American suburbia.
