Overview
Evan Rachel Wood (Thirteen), Ron Livingston (Office Space), two-time Academy Award® nominee James Woods (Best Actor, Salvador, 1987; Best Supporting Actor, Ghosts of Mississippi, 1997), and Selma Blair (In Good Company) star in this twisted teen comedy about a manipulative, young aspiring actress who will stop at nothing to achieve fame. Wood plays Kimberly Joyce, a student at an exclusive Beverly Hills high school, who weaves an intricate web of deceit and revenge that entangles her entire community. After persuading her friends into accusing their befuddled teacher of sexual harassment and charming the media into spinning the story in her favor, she brings everyone to their knees with a last-minute, shocking revelation.

Deviant as it is defiant, this critically acclaimed, dark comedy crosses all lines as it comments bluntly on contemporary American life and all its explosive topics — race, sex, gender identity, intolerance, materialism, and the superficial arena of celebrity. It will seduce you, shock you and leave you smiling — albeit sadistically!
