Slums of Beverly Hills Movie Review

Tamara Jenkins hits gold with this first effort, a funny portrayal of teen angst on the fringes of 1976 Beverly Hills. Natasha Lyonne is stellar as Vivian Abramowitz, a freshman coming to grips with her voluptuous body, nutty siblings, and deadbeat dad. Marisa Tomei is almost as good as Vivian's drug-rehab escapee cousin, who throws the Abramowitz family for a loop - but becomes their saving grace thanks to her wealthy father, who funds their existence "while she's clean." Which, of course, doesn't last long. A funny and light comedy, great for a rental.

Lyonne and her fashion sense.
