SUNDANCE WATCH: TEETH

I was planning to do one big post in which I conveyed what I know about the various films at Sundance this year, but perhaps I’m going to wind up taking a piecemeal approach… To start, then, here’s a link to the official website for the Dramatic Competition entry Teeth, which is directed by Mitchell Lichtenstein, who, some years ago, starred in Ang Lee’s The Wedding Banquet.

From the website, this synopsis:

High school student Dawn works hard at suppressing her budding sexuality by being the local chastity group’s most active participant. Her task is made even more difficult by her bad boy stepbrother Brad’s increasingly provocative behavior at home. A stranger to her own body, innocent Dawn discovers she has a toothed vagina when she becomes the object of violence. As she struggles to comprehend her anatomical uniqueness, Dawn experiences both the pitfalls and the power of being a living example of the vagina dentata myth.

Thanks to Twitch for the link.
