10 Teen Movie Makeovers And What We Learned From Them
Near the beginning of the film, Christian Ricci’s character, Elizabeth, says to her college roommate, played by Michelle Williams, “We’ll be like these beautiful literary freaks. Brilliant and dark, sexy.” This is a signal to you, dear viewer, that a makeover is about to happen. And what ensues is perhaps the most realistic kind of makeover in any movie -- the self-makeover. It's a visual representation of the character's emotional and psychological transformation.
In "Prozac Nation," its Elizabeth’s freshman year at Harvard. She goes from living a sheltered life with an over-protective mother, to throwing a "loss of virginity" party for herself while draped in pearls looking very Madonna-goth-chic. I approve.
