A thirteen-year-old girl's relationship with her mother is put to the test as she discovers drugs, sex, and petty crime in the company of her cool but troubled best friend.
Before shooting started, the girls would sleep in Tracy's bed, decorate the house and treat it like their home.
Hit me. I'm serious, I can't feel anything, hit me! Again, do it harder! I can't feel anything, this is so awesome!
During the intervention scene at the end of the film Tracy runs into the kitchen, and a calendar is visible, showing the date as October 2003. The scene where Tracy and Evie hit each other was said to be four months after the first day of school, which means it happened in late December or early January, and their injuries aren't healed when the intervention takes place, so the two events must have occurred close together. That's also far too early for a student to be told she will fail a grade no matter what she does, which happens immediately before the intervention scene.
Hampton, who is credited as having played himself, is the dog.
