Storyline

"Twitch" is a coming of age story about a teenage girl forced to care for her disabled mother, while beginning to come to terms with her emerging sexuality. Irrationally fearful that her mother's disability is contagious, she attempts to suffocate any possibility of illness. Her boyfriend, oblivious to her increasing hypochondria, only seems interested in her physically. Unable to find the emotional intimacy she craves, she ultimately must confront her fears and learn to take care of herself. Written by Leah Meyerhoff

Twitch is powerful
7 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw it at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City Utah. It's about a girl who's afraid she'll end up in a wheelchair like her mom. She tries to confide in her boyfriend but he is insensitive and oblivious. The film effectively cuts back and forth between her strained relationship with her mother and her conflicted relationship with her boyfriend. The actors gave strong performances, very realistic. Most of the time it didn't even seem like they were acting. It seemed like they were actually experiencing. Especially the lead girl. She is one to keep an eye on. Overall it was quite an emotionally moving film. That's probably why it won the Grand Jury prize.
