Sour Mix

Seven shorts about growing up. In Michelle Oznowics's conventionally styled drama Sour Mix a troubled girl at a new high school tries to deal with an overworked father and a mother in rehab; similar themes animate Erla Skuladottir's Savior, Catherine LeCouteur's Spin, and Miriam Kim's Just Between You & Me. Far fresher is the brash self-portrait Whatev...I'm Weird by teen extrovert Nicole Beaudry, who asks, “Who isn't weird? And if you're not, you're boring and I refuse to play with you.” In the truly unsettling Man's Search for Happiness, Caz McIntee hijacks an old Mormon filmstrip, inserting titles that recast it as a self-help aid for “genetically engineered” children in existential crisis. 93 min.
