A quarter of high school girls try to reconcile the suicide of a member of their clique in this brash drama. Despite their varied backgrounds, the friends commiserate about the trials of relating to parents, classmates and a patriarchal society.

The film’s foul-mouthed, belligerent characters challenge the audience to suspend traditional views of women. Noble intentions, ragged execution. Stars Lili Taylor. Rated R.
