WELCOME TO THE DOLLHOUSE is playing at the New Mission Theater as part of our latest series TALES OF THE OBSESSED: Ingrid Goes West and The Movies That Inspired It.

«I love stories about outsiders — intense, desperate or lonely people with their faces pressed against the glass, searching for a way in or some kind of real human connection. Like their protagonists, these films don't conform to society's standards; they're wild and unpredictable, sometimes dangerous or uncomfortable to watch, but always fascinating. When Aubrey Plaza and I were making Ingrid Goes West and looking for inspiration, these were the films we kept coming back to again and again for their fearless performances and mastery of tone. Thanks to the good people at Alamo Drafthouse for letting us share them with you. Enjoy!» — Matt Spicer, director of INGRID GOES WEST

Life straight-up sucks for seventh-grader Dawn Weiner. Her little sister is a precocious beauty queen, her older brother is a driven overachiever. Her parents barely acknowledge her existence. Heck, even the guy who threatens to assualt her can't even bring himself to do it. A lot of movies would treat Dawn as a noble outsider but nope, not WELCOME TO THE DOLLHOUSE. It's a movie that really digs its heels into the ground. Dawn Weiner is not here to suffer silently.

Todd Solondz's WELCOME TO THE DOLLHOUSE arrived at an interesting time in the mainstream embrace of independent voices in cinema. It was sold as a movie in the tradition of quirky film festival breakout hits, but in reality it's a pretty cynical and dazzlingly malevolent movie. However, it was through this marketing that WELCOME TO THE DOLLHOUSE achieved immortality by infiltrating the brains of nascent Dawn Weiners around the globe.
