Description

Todd Solondz became the most talked-about new director in 1995 with this acclaimed comedy about the suburban condition. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance, Welcome to the Dollhouse follows 11-year-old Dawn "Wienerdog" Wiener (Heather Matarazzo), a junior high geek who just wants to be popular. Teased by her classmates, tormented by the school bully, Dawn develops an improbable plan to seduce the star of a high-school garage band. Bitterly funny and true to life, the film is a "mordantly hilarious suburbancomedy - excruciating funny." (Janet Maslin, NYT)


Third Eye Cinema is a staff and volunteer-curated film series of all of our favorite flicks -- the cult classics, the ones you might have missed, the ones you need to revisit. This month's movie was chosen by our sponsors at >Cute But Crazy Socks, just two blocks from the PFC.  Fun socks since 2011!
