What teens are really like
5 February 2000 | by (Wisconsin, USA) – See all my reviews

Alison Folland plays Claude with such understanding and moving intimacy, letting us in on all of Claude's feelings with such effortless grace that you wonder why the hell isn't this terrific woman isn't getting Gwyneth Paltrow's roles? Maybe she's too damn good for them. She makes her characters so real (she did the same with To Die For's Lydia) I could go on and on. But there's more to this movie than Folland's masterfull take on it.

The movie is about a 15-year-old girl named Claude in Hell's Kitchen. She hangs out with Ellen (Tara Subkoff) and is in love with her. These conflicted feelings usually accompany gay-teen-coming-of-age movies, but never before has it seemed so honest. Claude makes friends with a gay neighbor named Luke (Pat Briggs from Psychotica) who helps her become more realized about her gay feelings. She seems like every teen out there, gay or straight, dealing with their emotions and trying to make sense of everything. She meets Lucy (Leisha Hailey of the Murmurs) who puts her emotions exactly where Claude can see them.

Ellen is no help though. She's even more screwed-up. She confuses Claude by not minding a kiss every now and then, mean while dating a loser drug dealer, who eventually devides the two after the death of Luke.

The most powerful scene of any movie I've seen in a long time takes place the first time Claude goes over to Lucy's house. Claude (a Patti Smith fan) turns on her song "Pissing in a River" and is emotionally overwhelmed while a confused Lucy watches helplessly. It's such a rare rock 'n roll moment of power that well represents a beautiful movie.
