Still image from the film Welcome to the Dollhouse
This dark, hilarious, suburban comedy follows the travails of Dawn Wiener, a shy, unpopular 7th-grade girl who is mercilessly teased at school, in the middle of New Jersey. Sometimes hated, often reviled, seldom understood, Dawn tries in vain to put on a happy and friendly face as she struggles through the onset of what looks to be a long puberty. Life is generally grim, she sees, and sometimes it only gets grimmer. Nevertheless, she does find moments of grace amidst the pain and humiliation of her first series of frustrated love affairs. The film won Grand Jury Prize for best dramatic feature at the Sundance Film Festival. (35mm presentation)

Todd Solondz is scheduled to be present.
