Critic Reviews for Girls Town
As a male writer-director, McKay proves to be extremely sensitive to the feeling and words of working-class women (Lili Taylor among them), determined to establish their self-worth as well as to fight against the social ills of the oppressive system
Taylor, Harris and Grace come up with some watchable, genuine moments. But they're often too involved in themselves; the movie indulges them too much.
Does an excellent job of uncovering the angst, pressure, and doubt associated with the late teenage years.
I would like to see another movie in three or four years, about what has happened to these angry, gifted friends.
Constructed without a traditional denouement, Girls Town will nevertheless satisfy viewers who want something that feels more like life than like art.
Audience Reviews for Girls Town
An empowering feminist tale made authentic by the actresses participation in the scripting. Holds appeal, partly because it could so easily have been an uplifting message movie but it refuses to be so simplistic.
A very powerful movie!
Very inspiring movie about best friends who cope with another's suicide and fight back at those who oppress them. Brukin Harris is the jewel in this movie-Lili Taylor annoys me many times over in most of her films, but she was quite good here. The movie has a really good feels about it, and is highly reccommended here:up:
