The movie documents the nuances in girl friendship at a fragile age that sometimes revels in syrupy, afterschool special type drama. But it's a gay, riot grrrl-light teen flick.

All Over Me is a poignant coming-of-age film that focuses on some of the sadder facets of growing up and discovering yourself.

Though the main charcater is lesbian, Sichel's gritty youth melodrama is so rich in ideas amd so roght in its texture that it goes beyond a coming-out ot even a lesbian-themed story.

Given great lyrical force by Folland, it comes closer to unlocking the secret lives of girls than any other recent American movie.

A confident first feature.

Part of the reason All Over Me possesses such a stark sense of realism is because of the keenly-observed, unaffected performances of the lead actors.

It succeeds beautifully at capturing the inner life of girls.
January 1, 2000
Less successful at portraying indecision than it is at inducing boredom.
January 1, 2000
Its blunt reprocessing of contemporary sacred cows in film realism ... rings false, the work of a user opting out of the imagination business.

Reveals the adolescence most everyone went through (or witnessed) but no one talks about.

Alex and Sylvia Sichel have taken a familiar coming-of-age story, something that might work as an Afterschool Special, and given it the contour, grit and white-hot energy of something much more.

Sichel strips her story to the essential, offering a film that's tough, compassionate and true.
January 1, 2000
I do think the Sichels got right much of the awkwardness of teenage transitions into adulthood and of the comfort girls find in the company of other equally confused and hormonally distressed girls.
