However, her image is hiding the abuse at her stepfather's hands, and she decides to take revenge. The events that follow are a mix of dark humor and an exploration of modern morality as Roseanne faces not only a fellow suburbanite who knows, but her own conscience as well. Written by

I love it. If they had it at night, I'd never leave.
You know, it's going to be so interesting to see what you're like when you get out of this gloomy stage.

An amazing film, I loved every frame of it. The film is a powerful exspience and plays sort of like Boys Don't Cry for a teen audence, not to say it's dumbed down, it has an intence impact, just like that film. I wish Saturn did get theatatrical distribution.
The film's start grabs you, the opening featuring an intence sexual sequence is mindblowing from the start. The film then starts to build momentum and devolop in intresting ways. This film is unfairly overlooked, the reviews weren't kind to it. This film is about real teens (just like "Whatever" and "The Adventures of Sabastian Cole" and even "Almost Famous"). Sure it's vissual style isn't always consistent, and it does mix the in-your-face syle of american indie film with the quite style of Canadian film-it's not Egoyan. Pehaps Smimdt has yet to make a masterpeace, but this film is very nicely made, nicely acted and aways keeps it's tone intact. I am corious to see what others think of this dark thriller.
