Zelly & Me ★★★ Phoebe 1988 (PG)

A strange little drama about a young orphan living with her maniacally possessive grandmother, who forces the child into her own interior life through humiliation and isolation from anyone she cares for. Well-acted and interesting film that suffers from an overly introspective plot and confusing gaps in the narrative. Look for director Lynch on the other side of the camera. 87m/C VHS . Isabella Rossellini, Alexandra Johnes, David Lynch, Glynis Johns, Kaiulani Lee, Joe Morton; D: Tina Rathborne; W: Tina Rathborne; C: Mikael Salomon; M: Pino Donaggio.
