(Winner of the Independent Spirit Award for Best First Feature) In 1976 San Francisco, 15-year-old aspiring comic book artist Minnie Goetze (Bel Powley) begins keeping an audio diary, hoping to mine it for material, in this 2015 film, adapted from Phoebe Gloeckner's graphic novel. After Minnie falls into the arms of her mother's (Kristen Wiig) boyfriend, Monroe (Alexander Skarsgård), she engages in an escalating series of hedonistic misadventures, and will either become a perpetual victim—or find the resolve that she needs to be an artist. DVD extras include director's commentary, a cast interview, and a featurette on the making of the film.

"[This movie is] morally complex and sometimes uncomfortably close to the bone, but also lushly bawdy and funny, and packaged together with an astonishing degree of cinematic brio."—Guardian (London)
