GirlDirector: Jonathan Kahn
Dominique Swain stars as spoiled, small-town high-school senior, 18-year-old Andrea Marr, who lives with her parents in an upscale suburb of Porter City, Washington -- where Andrea and her gal pals make the scene at various concerts and clubs. Before the summer ends and an Ivy League school takes her East, the virginal and somewhat confused Andrea hopes to achieve sexual satisfaction. She chooses Kevin (Channon Roe), but the encounter isn't quite what she was expecting, perhaps because she's more attracted to rocker Todd Sparrow (Sean Patrick Flanery). Absorbing advice from her friend Rebecca (Summer Phoenix), she plots a course of action and drops Kevin. After she succeeds in linking with her one-and-only, it's not long before she's disappointed to find that Sparrow has flown the coop. Swain's effective voiceover narration contrasts her careful plans with her impulsive actions. Shown in the market section at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival.

As you watch ''Girl'', you realize that perhaps those inner thoughts you always had but somewhat disregarded because you felt they were embarrassing and unique to your own embarrassing self, well, perhaps they are not quite as unique as you once thought. The girl on the screen is me.
This is one of my favorite movies,it has great music in it and when your watching it, you can't help but know what she is going through,if you were ever a teenage girl in love and never knowing the right thing to say or do.A must see movie. After seeing this Domaniqua Swain has become my favorite actress.
Oh my gosh me and my best friend used to be just like andrea, we both said screw it we will just do who ever comes along just like she does in the movie. Dominique is definitly one of my favorite actresses!! I have to buy this movie!!!
This is THE best film I have ever seen!! You feel just like Andrea when you watch it and she remind you a little of ''My so called life''. Plus lot of good music.
This movie is so me and incredible. I love this movie because its feel good, and its funny but dramamtic at the same time. It has some really good acting and music.
I fell in love with the book first and was very excited to see that they made it into a movie. It brings you in and you on some level understand what she is going through. The movie is just as good as the book. It has great music in it as well.
