Storyline

Kim's mother believes being a debutantee should be the most important thing in a young woman's live. So she makes a big fuss about it and gets on Kim's nerves. Consequently, and because she thinks he's an asshole, Kim refuses to go with her mother's choice: prestigious Scott, a senator's son. She asks out a guy she hardly knows and who - worse for her mother - is Latino. Her mother and Scott try anything to prevent her from this "social suicide".

"Animal House" goes to a debutante ball
19 March 2001 | by starentgrpSee all my reviews

The film did have a limited theatrical release after a very successful film festival circuit tour. "Social Suicide" (foreign release) aka "Prima Donnas" (USA release title) premiered at the Edinburgh International Film Festival where it received excellent audience response and a great review in Variety, and was then invited to the Cairo Internation Film Festival, AFI FilmFest, Houston Worldfest, among others.
