“Heather Matarazzo is the bravest actress I have ever seen. [In] Todd Solondz’s wonderfully funny-shading-into-brutal Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner about adolescent hell, Matarazzo maintains spectacular poise while playing Dawn Wiener, a miserably unpopular, dorky, nearsighted seventh grader [called] “lesbo” and ”Wienerdog” by her classmates and ignored by her clueless family. Yet Matarazzo — costumed in geeky eyeglasses and a tragically uncool wardrobe that does no favors to her preteen body — withstood the scripted taunts while enduring the real insecurities of being a regular 11-year-old girl, discovered by the filmmaker at a New Jersey mall.”
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
