Little Darlings

Little Darlings ★★★★

Kristy McNichol's (kind of channeling Brando) remains one of the great and most surprising acting jobs perhaps ever to be found on film, since Little Darlings is still an otherwise little movie, although very nicely put together. The soundtrack is real good (Supertramp, Lennon, the Bellamy Brothers), the cast noticeable (Tatum O'Neal, Armand Assante, Matt Dillon), the girly silly comedy is funny, the teen drama can be pretty effective... and yet none compares to McNichol. A performance for the ages, indeed.
