Crazy/Beautiful (2001)

2 1/2 Stars (out of 4)


By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Though the plot of this teen drama comes straight from a dozen after-school specials, thedirector John Stockwell and the two leads Kirsten Dunst and Jay Hernandez,deftly dodge most of the genre's usual cliches. Dunst plays the rich, spoileddaughter of a senator (Bruce Davison), while Hernandez busses two hours each wayevery day in order to attend a more prestigious school. Though the plotmechanisms restrict the overall film, the characters' talk and the emotions ringtrue.
