Todd Solondz' new film begins with the funeral of his beloved 'Welcome to the Dollhouse' character, Dawn Wiener. Touching on the same raw-nerve subjects as his earlier films - isolation, degradation, incest - this time he throws abortion into the mix as well. Aviva is Dawn's cousin, whose preoccupying wish is to have babies. Lots of them. Unfortunately an early termination, under the strong influence of her mother (Ellen Barkin), has left her unknowingly infertile. With 8 different actors playing the runaway Aviva this may be Solondz' most experimental film yet. Dark, satirical and one of a kind.
