Overview

Christina Wayne's teen drama Tart comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. English and Spanish subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials are limited to a trailer. Trimark has done a decent, but unremarkable job with this title. Those intrigued by the young stars (Bijou Phillips, Dominique Swain) may be interested, but there is little here for the average DVD consumer.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Tart, a straightforward depiction of self-possessed, spoiled teens, is the best argument yet for getting an after-school job in the late high school years. Like Larry Clark's Kids, the film is told in realistic scenes that sometimes are uncomfortably close to the truth, but without Clark's near-documentary feel. Dominique Swain has mastered the vapid, self-possessed character (see also Dead in the Water) very early in her career, but her act grows weary quickly in this one. Tart -- the title and box are supposed to make you think something far more lascivious than what actually goes on -- isn't terrible; in fact, the effortless acting is quite impressive. It's just that there's a moral crying out to be made, but writer/director Christina Wayne backs away from actually making a judgment. You never feel bad for these kids. In fact, "Brats" would have been a more appropriate title.

I thought that this movie was good,but a little weird. Brad Renfro's character disappointed me but I liked Domanique Swain in this she is always good in her films, this one her character is just trying to fit in and growing up is hell and she portrays it nicely.This movie is mostly about typical teen angst movies and violence there is sex,drug use and murder oh and some homosexual acts. But I find myself watching it when it's on HBO.
