User Reviews

Well acted; Provocative and Ultimately Disturbing.
12 April 2000 | by (GOLD COAST/AUSTRALIA) – See all my reviews

This film just blew me away. The tale of two teenage girls who are devoted to each other and conspire to murder an elderly woman was chilling.

The presentation of the film was realistic and honest. It's use of flashbacks and black and white photography, gave the film a stark and detached feel, yet enabled us to emphasise with the main protaganists, authority figures and victims.

The acting by the two leads; Alicia Witt and Renee Humpherey was superb, thoroughly deserving of the joint best actress award they won at the 1994 Sundance Film Festival. An extrordinary representation of todays lost and misguided youth, in a society that is floundering in it's own judgements; beliefs and failure to acknowledge the truth. 9/10.
