A colorful and foul-mouthed feature musical comedy.A film about a frizzy-haired, pink-cheeked outcast named Spork who is trying to navigate her way through the annals of junior high. When a school dance show provides a chance for Spork to show up a mean girls gang, her trailer-park neighbor steps up to coach her with some "booty-poppin" moves. Featuring a vintage 90's soundtrack (that includes 2-Live Crew, JJ Fad's "SuperSonic," Dimples T's "Get It Girl"), a score by Casey James and the Stay Puft Kid; and extended school hall dance sequences, Spork is a film about standing out and fitting in.

Instant Cult Classic
I was fortunate enough to catch the final midnight screening of this at
the Tribeca festival 2010. I went in with a very much half-soaked
approach. The idea of a sexual discovery narrative driven by a 12 year
old wasn't entirely appealing to me. But, having said that, my view was
instantly and irreversibly changed.
Within the first ten minutes of the film, you will find yourself
gripped by a cast matured far beyond their years, and intimate and
precise direction that is often lacking in even the most impressive
I wont go into the story, or why i enjoyed this film quite so much, but
suffice to say, the writing is spot on. Rather than talking down to the
young cast, the script really exalts them, and you feel on an emotional
par with every member of the cast.
I watched a lot of films from indie festivals this year, and i can only
hope that Spork gains the critical acclaim, and distribution deal that
it deserves. I cant wait to see it on British shores!
