So, I know I’ve neglected you for the last two weeks. I truly am sorry : (
It was completely unintentional, I promise. See…I had this little thing called Swine. (I always squawk when I say that word, like it’s associated with death or something, so if you could hear me it would sound like SWINE!) Really, it’s what I get after seventeen years of unhealthy eating and sleep deprivation. But still, I’m here to tell you: Swine? NO FUN.
But anyway, on to more important things. Like movies!

This is the story of a once-beauty-queen single mother who's seriously down on her luck. In desperate need of a job, she pottymouths her way into an office job where she stumbles upon a sketchy real estate case involving the Pacific Gas and Electric Company.

Melinda Sordino used to be a regular teen. And then IT happened. Now, feeling numb and unable to face the aftermath of this traumatic event, she turns completely inward, becoming a As her freshman year progresses, her fragmented past is slowly revealed through her sarcastic stream of consciousness, allowing the viewers to relate more closely to her troubling but worthwhile story.
This is such a touching film. I love Kirsten Stewart, and this is one of her earlier ones. With her haunting eyes and soft-spoken but powerful demeanor, she’s a knockout.
