PALINDROMES


This week's movie:
PALINDROMES

If you're looking for something a little unusual, ......

Todd Solondz makes movies that may be a little difficult to watch at times. Not that it's not filled with gory violence or anything like that. But he does know how to push people's hot buttons. He has a tendency to treat as matter of fact, topics that other people may have a little difficulty with (he made "Happiness" which was on my list a few weeks ago).

Palidromes is about a young teenage girl (I want to say about 13), who decides she wants to have a baby. She gets pregnant (I won't say how), but is forced to have an abortion by her parents. Undaunted, she runs away from home in an effort to try again.

The creative element, in this film, that may take two or three scenes to catch on, is that the filmmaker uses different actors to portray the main character, eight different actors, including two adults and one boy.

This movie is not for everyone, but if you're looking for something unusual, and you're not easily shocked or offended, check it out. If you are, check it out anyway. Sometimes you just need your sensibilities shocked a little.

Enjoy.
