Storyline

Two little girls hide in the boys' bathroom at school so they can find out what happens there. When two boys come in, the four gradually talk each other into taking off their clothes. The principal catches them, and angrily berates them for what they've been up to, warning them that he'll have to tell their parents about the incident. Later repercussions are seen as parents of three of them separately discuss and fight about what has happened, with some taking a winking attitude of their child's discovery and others battling about how to react. Returning to school poses an additional challenge, as everyone has found out what has gone on. Written by scgary66

Serious to the point of tedium
11 March 2003 | by (Oak Park, Michigan) – See all my reviews

(Note: I'm rating this film 17 years after I saw it; I was 11 at the time.) I was one of several children invited to view this film at the home of Director Dyan Cannon. My main recollection is that every kid there found this to be a boring film; it is definitely not a children's film.

The plot: Childhood curiosity leads four very young boys and girls (Kindergarden age?) to expose themselves to each other in their school bathroom. They are caught by a teacher (or principal -- I can't recall), who notifies their parents. The story then shows how the different families react to the news.

It received an Oscar nomination, so perhaps it's better than my 11-year-old self judged it to be at the time. Or perhaps there was a paucity of entries for "Best Short Film, Live Action" that year.
