'Blue Car'
(David Strathairn, Agnes Bruckner / R / 103 mins / Mirimax)

Overview: An 18-year-old aspiring poet (Agnes Bruckner), abandoned by her father and neglected by her overworked mother, looks to her English teacher (David Strathairn) for comfort and inspiration. What begins as a mentoring relationship becomes increasingly complex as the tension in her family escalates.

Verdict: 'Blue Car' is an unflinchingly honest coming-of-age portrait, modest and devastating on one hand, melancholy, insightfully scripted the other, but from all angles is a small gem of a movie. Perhaps, in some quieter places, 'Blue Car' is too lacking in ironic distance for an indie audience, and perhaps also too relentless a downer to appeal to the popcorn crowd, it's quietly devastating approach to reality is undoubtedly it's biggest selling point also! See this movie with an open mind and an open heart.
