Stephanie Daley

At the Tribeca Film Festival, during the Q&A for Normal Adolescent Behavior, director Beth Schacter told the room to see Stephanie Daley. She said it with such conviction, the title of the film stayed in my head. Out in DVD this week, I saw this film last night. An intense drama about a young girl in a troubled family situation, who finds herself pregnant and confused. Tilda Swinton plays the forensic psychologist who interviews the girl after an unfortunate turn of events. Amber Tamblin gives a masterful performance as Stephanie. This will strike a strong emotional chord with women who have experienced any kind of pregnancy. Intimately shot, well structured, a drama worth seeing.
