Stephanie Daley stands out for Amber Tamblyn's (The Grudge 2, Joan of Arcadia) unbelievable performance in the title role.

There's a rawness to [it]...it paints slick composition and beautiful, bleeding color on the kind of story about sex and faith that no one has told well in a while.

Sobering infanticide drama is too much for kids.

September 28, 2007
Cleverly conceived, coolly plotted and driven by two splendid performances, this second feature by indie writer-director Brougher (her first shown here) is hampered by a jarringly abrupt ending that suggests a failure of nerve.

Filled with emotional pain, it's a perceptive, truthful film interested not in passing judgement, but rather in exploring the truth about relationships, pregnancy and life.

not a great deal that is dramatic happens in the film, but it is that accrual of small details that fleshes out who these people are.

The acting is uniformly on a high level. Tamblyn is impressive, and Swinton, as usual, is outstanding.

Tamblyn's performance is a delicate balancing act; she has to stealthily reveal who Stephanie is to us while still holding back the most vital information until the very end.

Apart from Swinton's fine performance, what largely distinguishes this is Brougher's sharp narrative focus.

If ever there were a shamelessly preachy attempt to scare teen girls out of having unprotected sex, this is it.

April 27, 2007
To see Tamblyn's work here, to see her character almost simultaneously embody pain, terror, anguish, embarrassment, regret and just about any emotion you can think of, is to watch the kind of acting the medium exists to provide.
