Welcome to the Dollhouse

When we categorize this as a comedy, we mean a DARK comedy. This 1996 cult classic won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and launched the career of director Todd Solondz. A stark, poignant dive into the life of deeply un-cool suburban middle schooler Dawn Wiener, played by Heather Matarazzo. Roger Ebert called it "intensely entertaining...[Solondz] shows the kind of unrelenting attention to detail that is the key to satire."
