  1. While Rodriguez punches through the indie clutter to announce herself as a superb new movie talent, so Kusama scores big points in her first main event.
  2. The effect is as potent as a straight right to the solar plexus.
  3. 75
    A coming-of-age tale that truly floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee.
  4. 75
    Gets everything right.
  5. 70
    A scrappy independent film that packs the same emotional punch as "Rocky."
  6. We're in for a long, unpleasant, reactionary ride.
