Girl Asleep

Movie

In this vibrant portrayal of Australian adolescence, Greta Driscoll's bubble of obscure loserdom is burst when her parents throw her a surprise 15th birthday party and invite the whole school! Perfectly content being a wallflower, suddenly Greta's flung far from her comfort zone into a distant, parallel place -- a strange world that's a little frightening and a lot weird, but only there can she find herself. Equal measures Wes Anderson and Lewis Carroll, "Girl Asleep" is an enchanting journey into the absurd -- and sometimes scary -- depths of the teenage mind.
