The Diary of a Teenage Girl (2015)

Like most teenage girls, Minnie Goetze (Bel Powley) is longing for love, acceptance and a sense of purpose in the world. Minnie begins a complex love affair with her mother's (Kristen Wiig) boyfriend, "the handsomest man in the world," Monroe Rutherford (Alexander Skarsgård). What follows is a sharp, funny and provocative account of one girl's sexual and artistic awakening, without judgment. Directed by Marielle Heller. Rated R for strong sexual content including dialogue, graphic nudity, drug use, language and drinking – all involving teens. Genre: Drama.

The Fits (2016)

The Fits is a psychological portrait of 11-year-old Toni, a tomboy assimilating to a tight-knit dance team in Cincinnati's West End. Enamored by the power and confidence of this strong community of girls, Toni eagerly absorbs routines, masters drills, and even pierces her own ears to fit in. When a mysterious outbreak of fainting spells plagues the team, Toni's desire for acceptance is twisted. Directed by Anna Rose Holmer. Unrated. Genre: Drama.

Songs My Brothers Taught Me (2016)

The setting is the often starkly beautiful Badlands of South Dakota's Pine Ridge Indian Reservation; most of the key players are young Lakota Native Americans who attend Little Wound High School. Johnny and his preteen sister, Jashaun, spend time on horseback when they're not selling illegal liquor or tattoo-designed apparel. “Songs My Brothers Taught Me” captures the subtleties of a marginalized existence in which the historic culture of a people can't compete on a level playing field with the modern problems of poverty, alcoholism, and violence. Amazingly, she embroiders her tale with moments of breathtaking natural beauty that offset the despair her characters struggle against. An auspicious debut feature from a director whose superb eye is informed by the sophisticated and nuanced compassion she brings to her story. Directed by Chloé Zhao. Unrated. Genre: Drama.
