Story


"Dirty Girl" is the story of Danielle (Juno Temple), the dirty girl of Norman High School in Norman, Oklahoma, circa 1987. When Danielle's misbehavior gets her banished to a remedial class, she is paired on a parenting project with Clarke (Jeremy Dozier), an innocent closet-case with no friends. Danielle is determined to get to California to find the father she's never met, and Clarke is desperate to escape being sent to military school by his homophobic dad. Together, the mismatched misfits light out for California, and discover each other and themselves through a funny and serendipitous friendship.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..is hard not to root for these kids as they make their way through chaos and indecision..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
“..is a bad movie with no insights that is broadly drawn and genuinely plagued by filthy dialogue. You don't laugh. You just wince, and wonder how the whole thing ever got financed..”
by Rex Reed [NY Observer]
“..surprisingly affecting, and is packed with such emotional honesty..”
by Christy Lemire [Associated Press]
