Trama: La quindicenne Astrid è figlia di Ingrid, un'artista dalla forte personalità. Il rapporto di Ingrid con Barry, un giornalista, è burrascoso al punto che la donna decide di uccidere il suo amante avvelenandolo. Con Ingrid in prigione, condannata a trentacinque anni di reclusione, per Astrid inizia la girandola degli affidamenti alle famiglie. La famiglia deputata ad ospitarla è quella di Starr Thomas, una spogliarellista ex alcolista convertitasi alla fede in Cristo. Starr convive con Ray, un uomo che ad Astrid ricorda il padre che non ha mai conosciuto, e la ragazza gli si affeziona sempre di più, fino a vivere un rapporto ambiguo che provoca l'isteria della donna. Starr, che nel frattempo ha ricominciato a bere, una sera, infatti, spara un colpo di arma da fuoco verso Astrid, che si salva per miracolo. Guarita, la fanciulla è condotta nella comunità che ospita i ragazzi in attesa di affidamento. L'ambiente è squallido e la convivenza con le compagne risulta difficile a causa dell'aggressività di queste ultime. Nella comunità Astrid conosce però Paul, un ragazzo sensibile, dotato di uno spiccato talento artistico, dal rapporto con il quale nasce una piccola storia d'amore. Ma la relazione è subito interrotta: Astrid si trasferisce a casa di Claire Richards, una delicata attricetta che, in crisi per la costante lontananza lavorativa del marito (del quale sospetta una relazione extraconiugale), le dona incondizionatamente tutto il suo affetto. Ma Ingrid, gelosa del rapporto nato tra la figlia e la donna, spinge per conoscere Claire e imporre così tutta la sua personalità: durante l'incontro in carcere, Ingrid esaspera le insicurezze di Claire al punto da spingerla nei giorni successivi (e dopo l'intenzione palesata dal marito di lasciare l'abitazione) al suicidio. Profondamente addolorata e furente nei confronti della madre, reputata responsabile del suicidio, Astrid si chiude in se stessa, rifiutando l'affetto di Paul e l'affidamento ad altre famiglie, per accettare quello ad una donna bizzarra di origine russa, Rena, che la obbliga a girovagare per trovare nei rifiuti vestiti da vendere successivamente nei mercati

Thirteen by Catherine Hardwicke( Visual )

Tracy, tredici anni, è una studentessa modello. Ha un rapporto molto complice, quasi amicale con la madre Madeleine ed accetta di buon grado una vita familiare non certo tranquilla: i genitori sono separati, la madre vivacchia grazie a qualche lavoretto (taglia i capelli ad amiche e conoscenti) ed è sin troppo generosa nell'ospitare in casa amiche e persone in difficoltà, il padre non va mai a trovarla, a scuola non passa certo per una persona cool. Il quadro cambia del tutto quando Evie, la ragazza più ambita della scuola (o per dirla come i suoi compagni "la più calda"), sexy, trasgressiva, alla moda, le rivolge la parola. Prima per guadagnare la sua attenzione, poi per essere alla sua altezza, Tracy cambia completamente stile, passando dalle Barbie, i vestiti larghi e le treccine ai piercing sulla lingua, le minigonne, il trucco sempre più marcato. Per permettersi un look sempre alla moda comincia a rubare nei centri commerciali e, come se ciò non bastasse, viene iniziata da Evie - che si scoprirà essere in una condizione famigliare ancora più precaria di quella di Tracy (la madre è tossicodipendente, il padre assente) - alla droga e al sesso etero e omosessuale. Il piacere sempre più intenso per la trasgressione e la ribellione fini a se stesse porta Tracy ad aggredire prima la madre, poi il fratello e infine anche il padre finalmente "materializzatosi" dopo le innumerevoli richieste di aiuto da parte dell'ex moglie. Quest'ultima, disperata, nella speranza di mettere un freno a Tracy, acconsente al trasferimento di Evie in casa propria, ma la situazione peggiora invece di migliorare: ormai la figlia vive in perenne stato di eccitazione dovuto alle droghe e ad uno stile di vita fattosi sempre più insostenibile. Il brusco risveglio è dietro l'angolo e con esso l'esigenza da parte di Tracy di riconsiderare i propri atteggiamenti, le proprie relazioni amicali, i propri valori

"Set in the ante-bellum south, NIGHTJOHN tells the story of a young slave girl, Sarny, and her undeterred conviction to learn how to read and write. Sarny is taught by another slave, Nightjohn, at great risk to both of them, during a time in history when it was against custom for a slave to have these skills. NIGHTJOHN merits Peabody consideration because it teaches the power of freedom through literacy. This compelling drama is presented in a powerful, entertaining and moving fashion and is acclaimed director Charles Burnett's first feature film for television."--1996 Peabody Digest

Im Haus einer verstorbenen Sängerin lernen zwei aus dem universitären Betrieb ausgestiegene Literaten die vernachlässigte Tochter der Verstorbenen kennen, die das festgefahrene Leben der beiden Männer gehörig durcheinander bringt. Die melancholische Komödie huldigt auf kenntnisreiche Art dem Literaturbetrieb und zeichnet dank eines klug durchdachten Buchs ein sensibles Gruppenporträt, in dessen Verlauf über Werden und Vergehen philosophiert wird. Die überzeugenden Hauptdarsteller tragen zum Gelingen des künstlerischen Konzepts bei. [film-dienst]
