Rose McGowan's haunting new side
22 July 2015 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

Rose McGowan first got noticed when she played Neve Campbell's friend in Wes Craven's "Scream". She's starred in a few movies since then, and now moves behind the camera. The haunting "Dawn" looks at a teenage girl living in a sheltered household in the 1950s and hoping to break out of this squeaky clean existence.

It's worth noting that this is anything but a nostalgia piece. There are some unpleasant scenes. One might interpret the movie as questioning the image of the nuclear family. McGowan shows herself to be a competent director with this movie. I not only hope that people see it, but also that people pay attention to McGowan's discussions of continuing chauvinism in entertainment.
