Dawn Weiner is NOT dead.

Dawn Weiner, president of the special person's club.
If you don’t know who Dawn Weiner is, add Welcome to the Dollhouse to your list of movies to rent. If you do know who Dawn Weiner is: there’s a new movie out by filmmaker Todd Solandz continuing the story of Welcome to the Dollhouse, but in a very different way. I can tell it’s going to be another wonderful freakshow.

Listen to the NPR story about the new movie “Palindromes," including an interview with Heather Matarazzo, who is not in Solandz’ new movie.

See the trailer for Palindromes here.

And to end this post, here's a favorite quote from Welcome to the Dollhouse:
Dawn offers Steve something to eat while he waits for Mark to come home.
Dawn Weiner: Ring Dings, Pop Tarts, whatever! I can make Jell-O.

Last I heard, the movie hadn't found a distributor yet.

I hope it has by now.

I'm a big fan of Todd S.'s work.

Hey Rozanne!
I bet you're a John Waters fan too....
