Movie Reviews

Unusual, and a Little Gem
Christopher Roberts | New York | 11/05/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I got to see this movie at a festival in New York. I didn't know what to expect, and was totally delighted by it. It's definitely an off-beat film, with stylized performances and a funky, Austin TX vibe. But when it comes down to it, the film is incredibly poignant and sweet in how it tells the story of the title character, a teen girl struggling with typical teen issues in a very untypical way. If you liked "Welcome to the Dollhouse," you will definitely like "Gretchen" though I think Gretchen herself is a much more sympathetic and appealing character, and this movie -- while just as bitterly funny as "Dollhouse" -- has a good deal more pathos and sincerity."
