May the wickedly cute chick you might want to fear just a tad.

 

May (2002)

May is an awkward young girl trying to find acceptance in this world. Like any nonconformist can tell you, this is easier said than done. She is a strange girl whose best friend is a weird doll in a glass box who manages to somehow give May advice – advice that doesn't always work. May makes several attempts at making friends, but finds that the best option for her is a much more macabre one.

Angela Bettis as the title character is great. She comes off as strange, yet lovably sweet. Bettis makes it easy to connect to her odd character, thanks to her brilliant performance. Jeremy Sisto and Anna Farris play May's would-be friends and do a good job showing us how people tend to disappoint.

The story by Lucky McKee (no, not a typo) is solid. The lean screenplay gives the audience what they need to know and very little in the way of unnecessary scenes.

Direction (also by McKee) and photography are nothing special, but do the job of telling May's story well.

We recommended "May" for those with a slightly twisted sense of humor – or those who don't conform and have found they've paid the price for it.
