Review by Alvinicus (posted on 14-Feb-2005)
This is a very fast-paced, edge-of the-seat movie about two teenage girls spiraling out of control in a precocious spree of sex, drugs and crime. So convincing that you had to keep reminding yourself it was only a movie, although you have to believe there was some (auto)biography in there somewhere. Holly Hunter shines as the down-to-earth, doing-the-best-she-can Mom. Story has a positive, but not preachy, ending. Very cool soundtrack.
