Marina Antunes [Celluloid 06.29.11] movie trailer news drama

Another tale of girls causing trouble. A combination I can't get enough of. Meet Ari and Oona, the two 15 year olds at the centre of Lollipop Monster. They both hail from dysfunctional families though they deal with problems very differently: Ari acts out for attention, sleeping with older men while Oona bottles up her feelings choosing to take out her anger with cutting. The two are opposites who find some sense of normalcy in their friendship until "something happens that threatens their friendship at its very roots."

I have a soft spot for these troubled teen dramas though Ziska Riemann's debut appears to stray a little from the formula by incorporating some interesting visual styles including music videos and what appears to be amateur footage. Will be interesting to see how these fit into her story.

Trailer after the break.
