Home Room


Home Room Review

One of the first -- and least-seen -- films to grab onto the Columbine craze, Home Room is a worthwhile (though ridiculously long) investigation into how two girls handle the trauma of the event. Starring Busy Philipps and Erika Christensen as the shut-out Goth and the carefree party girl, respectively, the film spends the bulk of its time after the big event, with Christensen in the hospital, nursing a head wound, and Philipps forced to spend to with her for some bizarre reason. Unfortunately, after we see where this is all headed, director Paul F. Ryan waylays us with another half hour of group therapy and scream sessions.
