This is a story ABOUT A GIRL who doesn’t want to grow up. Charleen is 15, melodramatic, mega depressed, and Kurt Cobain’s biggest fan. Her best friend Isa is getting really boring, her dad is out of the picture, and her mom has hooked up with her biology teacher. Even though she has an apprenticeship preparing bodies for funerals, which is pretty cool, her musical idols are all dead. It’s about time Charleen was, too. But she can’t even get suicide right, and now the adults are all freaked out. She has to sit through therapy with Dr. Frei and his unusual methods. Two bright spots in Charleen’s life are her Granny and a genius named Linus. But when these relationships threaten to unravel, Charleen finally starts to look at more than just herself. Punctuated by indie rock tunes, ABOUT A GIRL features a theatrically rebellious (and therefore 100% convincing) performance by Jasna Fritzi Bauer. (In German with subtitles) – B.B.
