Storyline

Dawn grows up in the shadow of a nuclear power plant. In high school, while her biology class studies evolution, she realizes she may have a hidden curse, an "adaptation." She lives with her mom, step-father, and hard-edged step-brother. She likes Tobey, a guy at school, and he likes her. She takes a pledge to remain chaste until marriage, so they date in groups, watch G-rated films, and don't kiss, but the power of teen hormones is great, so temptation beckons. Dawn has an admirer in Ryan, and when when things have an unexpected twist with Tobey, she turns to Ryan for help. Will he be her mythical hero and rescue her? Or can she find her way as her own hero, turning the curse into an asset? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

Dawn O'Keefe has brown eyes as a child in the first scene, but has blue eyes in the rest of the movie. However, 10 - 15% of Caucasian people experience some eye color change. It is not unlikely for a child's eye color to change from brown to blue. See more »

12 February 2007 | by fenderbender-1See all my reviews

When I read the caption to this movie I was not sure what to await; when I read first comments I was even more unsure. I got into the screening at the Berlin International Film Festival since a friend's friend was the cinematographer of this picture. I got to admit the movie starts a bit shaky in tone and setting, but does this always have to be such a bad thing ? Along the way it found it's own -admittedly- intriguing to mesmerizing hybrid of style between social satire, coming of age and teen splatter...yet avoiding the pitfalls that each of those genres might have had. It is a strange, maybe estranging experience to watch - but what do you expect from a such a topic of ancient horrific myth ? All in all an entertaining experience.

Very good performances not only of John Hensley but also of Jess Weixler, especially as her character tends to grasp and discover her "power" later in the film. I would'nt want to say who was better...

Also one or two just incredible, uhhh, funny scenes. Yes, it borders on the kind of humour you would expect from teen pie-comedies. But it is definitely not exploiting these moments.

Maybe not a date movie - maybe, too ;-)
