If you're ever looking for reasons why growing up sucks, look no further than "Welcome to the Dollhouse," Todd Solodz's fascinating breakout dark comedy.

Todd Solondz is known for tackling subject matter most directors wouldn't touch with a 10-foot pole. This may be one of his more accessible films, though it's still rather dark dealing with alienated youth and outsiders in general. Still, it's worth it to watch.

A truthfully funny and painful story of young adolescence that is not often seen in movies. This film shows the more awkward and cruel side to that middle school age, through a sympathetically flawed character.
