Accomplished student short
7 November 2004 | by (Chicago, IL, US) – See all my reviews

This accomplished short, done as a student project, appears on the Criterion Collection DVD of director Green's first feature, "George Washington".

It's remarkable that this young Southern white boy can make a film with an even younger Southern black girl at its center, and not have it be about race issues, or gender issues either. Probably Green would say it's more about the semi-rural community life.

I didn't understand why the widower father thought he could help his daughter pick out menstrual supplies. Wouldn't his first reaction be to have her talk to the school nurse, or an aunt, or in fact the cousin who does soon enough show up by chance?
