Storyline

When her obsession with school bad boy Ricky gets out of hand, her mother sends her to an emotional treatment center to recover. She has to travel elsewhere, however, to truly begin to understand why she fixates on the wrong kind of guy. Written by Anonymous

Yet when they arrive at the prom at the high school, which isn't very far away from where Gretchen lives, it is already completely dark out. See more »

Lots of heart
29 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Great and lovely characters swim through a back drop of ugly dilapidated small town life in this slow burn character study that is touching, funny and poignant.

The film takes it's time to really allow us to see inside the mind of the title character, Gretchen (a charmingly tortured Courtney Davis). The film also boasts a wonderful supporting cast (with Becky Ann Baker who brought wonderful life to the unfairly cancelled Freaks and Geeks years ago) and creatively depressing production design including a fast food joint that God forgot (complete with gurgling nacho cheese machine) and the lamest techno rave ever conceived (at least they sold popcorn for 50 cents).

Great work to everyone involved and congrats on your success.
