Ricci and Lange are good actresses, but in this feature they offer a terrible performance. It may be due to the poor directing, or it may be the horrible script. The script is supposedly based on a true story, about a supposedly talented freshman female student, who is in burdened by the issues in her relationship with her divorced parents, her friends and partners. The story takes place in the late eighties and it may be interesting for only short time to a few Lou Reed fans, or maybe for the first 5 minutes to some Ricci fans, as she appears in full frontal nude, but that would be about it. There is nothing original about this movie. There are some other big names in the talent roster, but they also give poor performances. The story goes back and forth during the freshman year of the main character at Harward, as she has repeated meaningless fights with everyone around her, including her shrink, without any clear direction or message. At points, it is suggested it is due to drug and alcohol abuse, but not confirmed clearly. If this were indeed the true life events of the author of the book this movie is based on, I am really puzzled at why on earth would anyone be interested in learning about it.
