One of the most unique heroines on film, almost the anti-heroine!
15 March 2002 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

This was one of those cool movies that starts off with a simple story and then keeps layering. Shanee Edwards, who played the lead character Renata, did a great job bringing this character to life on the screen. Renata is complex and passionate, towing the line between childhood fun and adult sexuality. She wants to fit in like everyone else, but decides not to be powerless when she's subjected to humiliation. She fulfills all of our fantasies by getting back at the mean kids, but unfortunately, her plan goes awry. I would like to see a part two to see how her life turned out.
