What I liked was seeing Wynona Rider play the part of a misunderstood child who is disrespected and bullied and knowing maybe that will wake some people up to how bad that looks. The way she maintains self-control and loves those animals is so sweet. There are parts of her life and personality that I identify with and some I do not. Life and people can be really hard on others who do not fit into the expectations of those around them. I agree with a lot of the other reviewers that this is a movie more about Dinky than Roxy and her experiences with other people in a town obsessed with a former person who once lived there who is now famous. I liked that the Guidance Counselor tried to help her. Today she would have probably been accused of being a Pedophile. What I did not like was the cursing, nudity, harassment, and seeing a marriage fall apart and two little ones suffering in the midst of it. This may be a realistic portrayal of life but as the movie progressed I almost felt the Producer wanted the viewer to think this was funny. Not so for me. I also do not get other viewers who are okay with their children viewing inappropriate scenes which should be for adults. Heck I am an adult and I do not want to see nude scenes, two couples having sex, even if they are married. The two women who had obviously been together sexually the night before was sickening. As the scenes went on and on, to me this movie just got more and more perverted. I felt so sorry for this child. These scenes represent to me, all that is wrong in this world or much of it. I could not finish. For people like me who read the reviews to decide if I want to take the time to watch, I am writing this honest review. We all have our own ideas of what is acceptable and entertaining to us. We need to respect that when writing a review and I am trying. I just know this is not for me. I would rather spend time watching happier movies.
