Storyline

At the edge of adolescence, Tracy is a smart straight-A student--if not a little naive (it seems...she smokes and she cuts to alleviate the emotional pain she suffers from having a broken home and hating her mom's boyfriend, Brady.) When she befriends Evie, the most popular and beautiful girl in school, Evie leads Tracy down a path of sex, drugs and petty crime (like stealing money from purses and from stores). As Tracy transforms herself and her identity, her world becomes a boiling, emotional cauldron fueled by new tensions between her and her mother--as well as, teachers and old friends. Written by Miss Kittin

Trivia

Except for a few scenes, almost the entire movie was shot by a handheld camera. See more »

Goofs

During the intervention scene at the end of the film Tracy runs into the kitchen, and a calendar is visible, showing the date as October 2003. The scene where Tracy and Evie hit each other was said to be four months after the first day of school, which means it happened in late December or early January, and their injuries aren't healed when the intervention takes place, so the two events must have occurred close together. That's also far too early for a student to be told she will fail a grade no matter what she does, which happens immediately before the intervention scene. See more »

Tracy: Hit me. I'm serious, I can't feel anything, hit me! Again, do it harder! I can't feel anything, this is so awesome!

It was great!!
10 December 2004 | by djsteve321See all my reviews

I really liked the movie. It explains the whole way a teens life can take a one-eighty in a split second. It shows what us teens have to go through in life, school, friendships, relationships. It gives people a feel for our lives as teens and how some of us deal with drugs, alcohol, sex, etc. The movie really explains to people what can happen in one persons life let alone a whole group of them. It spoke to me and a few of my friends that watched it. It is a powerful movie that I will recommend for many others to watch. It deeply made me think about my friends at school and if they are going through the same situation or worse. Is there a way I can help them? The movie is excellent and I believe every teen and young adult as well as adults should watch the movie and see what their kids may/may not be going through in life.
