It's the type of film where people don't speak much, and when they do, you'll wish they would just shut up.

Dandelion is Mark Milgard's directorial debut, and it is a worthy one.

Like its troubled protagonists, Mark Milgard's ultrasensitive ode to adolescent angst is equal parts earnest and awkward.

The desolate Western landscape through which the characters in Mark Milgard's promising debut wander in an introspective daze, defines their emotional life.

A refreshingly region-specific entry in a teen-angst subgenre plagued by lazily sketched suburban settings.

Jodie Foster's Nell might describe Dandelion's characters as tays een da ween.

Spirituality and Practice

A woefully bad teenage love story overflowing with melodramatic touches that are excessive and unbelievable.

Milgard does a tremendous job of telling a story, and of setting up in a manner that commands that you pay attention.
