Movie Info

It's the start of a new year at a small suburban high school. Abigail (Quinn Shephard) is an outcast who seeks solace in the worlds of the characters she reads about, much to the amusement of her manipulative classmate, Melissa (Nadia Alexander). When an intriguing new drama teacher (Chris Messina) casts Abigail over Melissa in Arthur Miller's The Crucible, Abigail's confidence blooms, and soon her relationship with Jeremy begins to move beyond just fantasy. Melissa, fueled by vengeful jealousy, begins to spiral out of control and concocts a plot against Abigail. This triggers a chain of events that will come to affect everyone around them, as well as reveal some dark truths.

  • It's a story where, perhaps, there's enough guilt to go around. But the credit for telling it goes completely to a bright young talent.

  • Shephard has a lively eye for the neurotic ripples of high-school society, but her most audacious gambit is to dare to place the audience in a grey zone between innocence and judgment ...

  • It's a deliberate film, and a brilliantly constructed one as well. We definitely haven't heard the last of Quinn Shephard.

  • "Blame" is earnest but underdeveloped. At the same time, it's overdetermined and often overplayed.

  • It's impressive enough that 22-year-old Quinn Shephard wrote, directed, produced, edited and stars in the high-school melodrama "Blame." It's almost a bonus that the movie's good.
