Drama
A really effective film about three girls bumming around Brooklyn in the last month before their sophomore year in high school. The script and actors perfectly reproduce the sounds of the Brooklyn dialect, and the meandering, plotless story is riveting by virtue of its intense naturalism. Documentary-style camera work and casting that emphasizes a kind of ordinary appearance enhance the effect. While it's rare that a film that attempts realism is actually engaging, Our Song succeeds because of the quality of its small touches.
Director: Jim McKay
Cast: Kerry Washington, Anna Simpson and Melissa Martinez
