Capital Celluloid - Day 164: Wednesday June 15

Welcome To The Dollhouse (Solondz, 1995): @ The Book Club, 100 Leonard St, Shoreditch 7.30pm

This is an Amy Grimehouse presentation and you can expect guest DJs and chocolate cake. This is what they do. Here's where you can get involved.

Chicago Reader review:

'An intriguing and arresting dark comedy (1995) from American independent writer-director Todd Solondz, who focuses on an 11-year-old misfit in New Jersey but refuses to sentimentalize her. It's worth pondering whether Solondz goes out of his way to pile on her miseries, but this isn't as obvious a skewering of what it means to be American, adolescent, and unloved as it may first appear; it's also about the interactions of a twisted world we all live in. Winner of the grand jury prize at the Sundance film festival; with Heather Matarazzo, Victoria Davis, Christina Brucato, and Brendan Sexton Jr.'
