The Dead Girl

I just wanted to plug a great movie I saw recently that I think is one of those indie films that gets lost in the shuffle for most of us. I forget why it came up, but at some point The Dead Girl was recommended to me by Netflix, so I added it to my queue. The Dead Girl is a quiet little film with some great talent: Mary Steenburgen, Toni Collete, Josh Brolin and plenty of others. The gist of it is that someone finds the body of a dead stranger, and we see how this discovery affects the lives of several people. In that sense it’s a little like “Crash,” but felt less hectic to me. I’m no big critic when it comes to movies, but I thought the acting was great and the story was just wonderful. Go rent it, or queue it, or check it out — however you get your film fix.
