A great little story!
3 June 2004 | by rcraig62See all my reviews

I'm not much of a watcher of short films, but I happened to catch this one on an IFC Short Film Festival and I thought it was just wonderful! It's about a young girl who wears clothes to school that her mom makes for her, gets picked on for it, and responds in a most unexpected way (to tell more than that would give away the whole thing). Skye McCole-Bartusiak is a doll in the leading role. Kellie Waymire (the late Kellie Waymire, apparently) is a shrewd and caring mom, and Enrico Colantoni as the clueless dad is hilarious. A fun and funny film for all ages. I was so sorry when it ended so quickly. Highly recommended. 4****out of 4 stars
