Entertainment Reviews:

Sight and Sound - 02/01/2001
"...A striking visual design....The soundtrack uses well-chosen snatches of grunge music..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 09/22/2000
"...It is the kind of movie that lives and breathes....It contains excellent things....The story is a dark, juicy melodrama..."
Uncut - 08/01/2001
"A dark, disorienting look at the dysfunction that simmers beneath the shiny surface of American suburbia..."

Product Description:

In director Robert Schmidt's adaptation of Fyodor Dostoevsky's classic novel CRIME AND PUNISHMENT (the "in Suburbia" is Schmidt's addition), the role of the protagonist is played not by a troubled young man who kills his landlady, but by a teenage girl (Monica Keena) who murders an older man who has been molesting her. The punishment, rather than a police interrogation and exile to Siberia, is a series of psychological discussions with a common cop who has a romantic interest in her. An interesting take on an old story, the film raises the nagging moral questions: When is a crime justifiable' and How does the punishment fit the crime'
