synopsis


Todd Solondz's modern American fairy tale tackles poignant themes of abortion and identity. After having an abortion, Aviva is desperate to get pregnant again. She meets an oddball mix of people sharing a variety of views and forcing her into different paths of action. More intriguingly, Aviva is inhabited by eight different people providing a wry commentary on race, identity, and gender.

The plot of this film is pretty darn disturbing, and it takes a while for your brain to adjust to the main character being played by so many different actors, but ultimately, somehow, it works. They capture her innocence very well, despite how different they all are. But be warned - it does make for very uncomfortable viewing (like the rest of Solondz's films) and you don't know whether to laugh or cringe at many parts, but the premise is an interesting one that stays with you long after the film's over.
