Storyline

There is an electric moment for girls on the cusp of adolescence, as they leave behind the bold egoism of girlhood for the shaky self-consciousness of their teens. Cusp is a portrait of Alice, a spirited 12 year old, hitting the wall of early adolescence. Her fierce struggle to retain her sense of self, despite the onslaught of other voices, denotes the unique experience of a girl coming of age. As Alice teeters on the edge of adolescence, her connection to her mother begins to seesaw and the tensions of sixth grade social order begin to dramatically play themselves out. Alice is left as an anthropologist of her own culture, bravely attempting to understand her initiation into the world as a young woman. Written by Ruth Sergel

great emotion
23 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

great movie expresses great emotion of a young teenager vibrant characters mainly Alice. i believe there are a lot of Alice's out there in the world of teenagers. at the age of twelve a lot of girls are experiencing the pressure of not knowing if they want to face adult hood or stay a child. it could become a major struggle dealing with the fact that you are growing up. Boys is now the topic of discussion, instead of dolls during girl talk. I think Ruth Sergel did a great job with framing this movie properly so that all can relate to her characters. Alice was my favorite person in the movie. then i liked the mothers best friend Elaine. she was going to make sure Alice didn't make the same mistakes as her.
