You might like this movie unless you are white, texan, military, male...the only "good" white folks are the new neighbors, he was in the peace corps, she listens to NPR...this movie is about as subtle as a sledgehammer, or a michael moore "documentary." The acting is uniformly bad, even laughably so in the case of the pregnant neighbor.Writing, directing, sound, i just cant think of anything good about this movie. The extras include a discussion with a spokesman for the Sikh community. All due repect, listening to this man whining was torture.The director cant wait to tell us he's a "gay man",and so is one of the persecuted peoples. We are all victims...(sniff)
If you're not into knowing the truth about different types of discrimination in this country then this movie is not for you. If you're one of those people that believes that everything in America when it comes to race, traditions, culture, and religion is honky-dory, then this movie will be a funny, but rude awakening. It's not Oscar material, but it's a good glimpse into the life of someone that is persecuted for being different, from her classmates, to her mom, to her dad, to her neighbors. I do have to say that the ending (the last 5 minutes of it) was thrown together badly and should have had more thought put into it. Overall though, two thumbs up!
first let me say as soon as i seen this movie on tv i rushed to buy it...this movie is great and it is very funny at times but it also teaches a lesson a funny sort of way that sometimes you have to let go of somethings....i choose to buy this movie because its entertaining and its a movie that you can watch a thousand times and not get tired of it...highly recommended give it a try
A must see for all parents of adolescent girls. I applaud the author and director/producer for revealing thoughts and behaviors which people are reluctant to discuss. I highly recommend this movie.
This was a surprise for me. I rented it, and once I saw it I had to have it for my personal collection. It's dark, and alarming yet revealing in the telling of a young girls rite of passage into womanhood. For some young ladies this passage is warm and gentle and for others not at all pleasant, quite confusing and even shameful. You have to see for yourself how this charming,and talented actress deals with this powerful and moving role. She is great to say the least.
