Welcome to the Dollhouse


Welcome to the Dollhouse

Seventh grade Benjamin Franklin Junior High School student Dawn Wiener is a social outcast who wants to be liked. At school, she is often bullied and called Wiener Dog. The other social outcasts don't want to associate with her. Her teachers don't even seem to like her. And at home, her parents, especially her mother, favor Dawn's younger sister, the ballerina princess-like Missy, or Dawn's older brother, the nerdish Mark, who at least has a focus on the goal of getting into a good college. Because of this lack of attention at home, Dawn will often use the bullying tactics used on her by others on Missy, which gets her into even more trouble with her parents.

Dawn's want for social acceptance leads her quietly fostering the attention of one of her primary school bullies, Brandon McCarthy, a boy from the proverbial wrong side of the tracks who always threatens to rape her. But Dawn's focus on Brandon lessens when Mark enlists the services of older popular student Steve Rodgers for his mediocre band (in exchange for help at school). Because he doesn't shun her, Dawn works toward the goal of getting Steve to be her boyfriend.

Michelle King

The soundtrack of Welcome to the Dollhouse felt disjointed and out of touch with the emotional depth of the film. The music choices did not enhance the scenes or evoke the intended feelings, making it difficult to connect with the characters' struggles.

On the other hand, some tracks in the soundtrack feel repetitive and uninspired, failing to bring any new emotional depth to the story. The lack of variety in musical styles and tones at times detracts from the overall impact of the film, making certain scenes feel dull and monotonous.
