Dirty Girl shows up at GW

It's not every day you get an invite to interview someone associated with a dirty girl and at a university to boot.

Such was the case, however, when a movie of the same name arrived at George Washington University.  The Weinstein production held it's opening night screening at Lisner Auditorium with director Abe Sylvia in tow.

Best described by the producers as "A raucous, feel-good road-trip film with a clever, postmodern edge, Dirty Girl follows the travails of teenaged Danielle (Juno Temple) on a cross-America adventure in search of love, family and identity.  Danielle, who’s garnered every naughty moniker imaginable for herself, is loved and hated in equal parts in her conventional small-town for her totally blasé morality."  

The best part of the movie though may be the performance by the multifaceted talent of William Macy who plays the born-again step dad.
