I saw The Girls' Room at the Nashville Independent Film Festival and was floored by it.
Inspired direction, a terrifically complete script, and sharp performances fill the screen. Irene Turner's directorial debut is an excellent and well-paced one. Soleil Moon Frye's Casey absolutely owns the screen as a defining sexual-existential-college-punk-grrl.
The title may make males wince, but The Girls Room is happily not a chick flick. It is a funny and knowing Gen-X movie that hopefully will find a large audience.
