Why Watch? Because kids can be so cruel.

We’re lucky enough to feature some short films from directors on the rise, but we’re also lucky enough (thanks internet!) to go back and watch the early work of established talent.

I’m not a big fan of Sofia Coppola‘s films, but this short shows a completely different side of her. There’s a momentum here – an almost MTV sensibility – that doesn’t exist in her other movies. Here, in a short that lies somewhere between the tones of The Virgin Suicides and Mean Girls, a group of 7th grade girls plot a secret plan based on “Flowers in the Attic.”

As it turns out, 7th grade girls can be real assholes. So can everyone else.

For fun – see if you can spot Peter Bogdanovich in a small role.

What does it cost? Just 14 minutes of your time.
