Storyline

It's 1963. Poor little rich girl Lydia and her 14-year-old love-child Sam are banished from North Carolina while her powerful father runs for governor. They end up in Wyoming where she parties and Sam finds he's one of only two Grosvant High School students who read. Maurey is the other, a pre-pubescent girl wanting to discover what sex is about. She and Sam set out to learn with help from Lydia, who tells them it stops when Maurey has her first period. Trouble is, pregnancy comes first. In this small town, what can Maurey do, and will Sam have any say? Meantime, Hank Elkrunner, a Blackfoot, falls for the feckless Lydia, while her dictatorial dad keeps tabs on them all from afar.

I laughed very hard and cried a bit too, this one's a keeper.
10 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

Just got back from watching the world premiere of this film at the Seattle International Film Festival. I must say, I enjoyed this movie a great deal. Skipped Parts is a wonder to behold -- outrageously funny, poignant and bold. It never shies away from the tough subjects it covers while at the same time enlightening us with its humor. The acting is top-drawer, Jennifer Jason Leigh is brilliant once again, with standout performances by young Bug Hall and Mischa Barton. I don't want to give any of this one away, but I highly recommend you check it out. A word of caution, if you find sexual banter and activity between 14-year-olds disturbing, do not see this film, it is not for the close-minded. Slated to be released in September 2000.
