Welcome to the Dollhouse

1995 R

The horrors of junior high are vividly re-created in this darkly comic tale of the painfully awkward Dawn Wiener (Heather Matarazzo), a middle child who must cope with a dreary home life -- and with classmates who mercilessly taunt her. Writer-director Todd Solondz's unflinching look at the nightmare of early adolescence took away prizes at both the Sundance Film Festival and the Independent Spirit Awards.
