Critic Reviews for White Girl
Frequently difficult to watch, White Girl is the powerful feature debut of a filmmaker with original vision and clear talent -- and a movie that proves a lead actress can possess the gift of transformative performance skills.
Neatly plotted and minimally staged, the movie marks Wood as a talent to watch, but Saylor deserves equal credit for her layered performance as the title character, a confident young woman who crumbles into a confused and frightened child.
First-time writer-director Elizabeth Wood's White Girl sets out to be a Great Gatsby for the 21st century - and perhaps in the process, to depict the orgastic future that Fitzgerald mentioned at the story's end.
Harrowing to the point of being off-putting - but not quite.
"White Girl" announces the arrival of a director of considerable verve, and its choice of style and subject toes a similarly tricky line between leering exploitation and unflinching portraiture.
Audience Reviews for White Girl
Elizabeth Wood displays an enormous talent behind the cameras of her first feature film, almost placing us right there next to her character and managing what is most difficult: to make us sympathize with someone in a spiraling descent into mad obsession and drug addiction.
