Seventh-grade is no fun. Especially for Dawn Weiner when everyone at school calls you ‘Dog-Face’ or ‘Wiener-Dog.’ Not to mention if your older brother is ‘King of the Nerds’ and your younger sister is a cutesy ballerina who gets you in trouble but is your parents’ favorite. And that’s just the beginning–her life seems to be falling apart when she faces rejection from the older guy in her brother’s band that she has a crush on, her parents want to tear down her ‘Special People’s Club’ clubhouse, and her sister is abducted….

Film Review

Heather Matarazzo stars as Dawn Weiner in Todd Solondz'ode to junior high school, otherwise known as middle school. She's a student at Benjamin Franklin Junior High School where she is mercilessly harassed by other students, male and female alike. She is also scapegoated by clueless parents and self-absorbed siblings. She longs for excitement in the fantasy arms of a high school guy, far too old for someone of her ilk. Dawn agrees to be raped by another guy at her school, and somehow there's still hope? This too is a misdirected abusive situation, which naive kids like Dawn do not understand. Seriocomic results are harvested throughout the film from similar situations. The only thing is, the film seems like a one note tapestry illustrating the slings and arrows of junior high and nothing more. The relentlessness of Dawn's mistreatment is clear; at the end, Dawn runs off to New York to find her kidnapped sister. She discovers her sister is found via a phone call, but th…

If you've never heard of Todd Solondz, then I should explain that "Welcome to the Dollhouse" is probably the most watchable. His movies – at least the few that I've seen – are always complete downers, containing characters who are either sickos, helpless, or something similar. His first notable movie concerns Dawn Wiener (Heather Matarazzo), a New Jersey middle school girl ostracized by everyone around her. The only boy who gives her any good advice is totally pitiful himself. Dawn's entire life is one big FML.I recommend "WTTD", but with the caution that it IS a total downer. Hell, you might not even end up liking it. But it is worth seeing.

I think Welcome to the Dollhouse is more realistic than fake. The characters and the setting are realistic as well. In every school, there is always a smart, dorky student, a burn-out kid, and an annoying little sister and/or brother. Welcome to the Dollhouse is really close to being real especially in the scene where Dawn is out in search for her little sister. She goes to sleep and dreams about rescuing her sister from the kidnapper and all of a sudden, everybody likes her. Even the lead singer of her brother's band, Steve, likes her. Now I know that's something a person who barely has any friends would dream about. Some parts are a little exaggerated. Like the part where the burn-out kid tells Dawn to meet him outside because he's going to "rape" her. Dawn gives in because she's afraid of him. I think, that every Junior High student would know the seriousness of a rape situation. Another one was when the burn-out kid starts getting a little too attracted t…
