Storyline

Andrea Marr is a bright, straight-A, mature, 18-year-old high school senior on the verge of womanhood who decides to abandon her sheltered, boring lifestyle and her bookish friend Darcy for a look into the local rock and roll scene as a groupie to local rock singer Tod Sparrow and learn more about the life of one who follows a touring band along with her new friends aspiring rock star wannabee Cybil, outgoing fellow groupie Rebecca, and music critic Kevin.

disappointment and let-down
10 March 2001 | by gkjohnsonSee all my reviews

Great book, movie sucked - a common theme for paper to film transitions, but this time I don't care. I *hated* this movie. Dumbed-down plot, dumbed-down emotions, cartoon characters. I've nothing against Dominique Swain - she was brilliant in Lolita (really, I mean that) - but I expected so much more from her in Girl. I think the sucking factor had to do with faulty direction - the film never really decided if it wanted to be coming-of-age story, tongue-in-cheek teen comedy, or Portland scenester bio. It never achieved any coherence, and whatever sincerity we had in Andrea seemed, at the end, forced and trite. I did like seeing (and his name escapes me) the actor who plays Francis from Malcolm in the Middle in a small role. Last and largest complaint: I wish the film had had a bigger budget so that it could've actually been filmed in Portland!
