And its moral story is a quiet series problem of the modern life, Drama Queen Psychopaths.
And this movie displays this sickness so simple, yet so so complex.
It is a tragedy, yet it is a comedy.
It is so dry, yet it is so fleshed.
It is so raw, yet it is so elegant.
The plot shows the drama queen, Kimberley, operating on a an environment where all little poor hypocrites are under affection of her.
Movie shows how everyone else has a share of hypocrisy, pumping up the dramas of the Queens.
And Kimberly knows this, and uses this. That is where her "superiority" over others lies.
She knows she has the upper hand.
While everyone else is busy with their own petty concerns, devil is busy to prepare her drama based on these petty concerns.
Every little scene, every actor, every acting is prepared with no mistake, and to the point.
Casting was great. Everyone performed well.
James Woods at dinner scene, Ron Livingston at dinner scene with his wife, Jane Krakowski at news reporting scenes are all wonderful.
Take Robert Joy at the court scene. He is so amazing, by just saying nothing.
And Evan Rachel Wood (Kimberly) is just wonderful.
She is not acting this drama queen, she knows her by heart ( she must have been either exposed to drama queens to much, or herself is one )
The movie is very similar in style and plot to Wild Things  as Kimberly sucks the others into her schemes but has the bitchiness and backstabbing of Cruel Intentions , and also sees the fantastic Selma Blair in a support role. Some of the dark humour and the occasional surreal scene style also incorporates elements that would not be amiss in Twin Peaks .
The film has no special features other than a trailer and scene selection and uses a few plot twists and flashbacks to tell its story. The film is quite flowing and carries along at a good pace but despite the excellent acting [especially Evan Rachel Wood] it never manages to quite terrorise or enthral as the above mentioned films did. This is not a comedy, but does have many tongue in cheek moments, much being sexually based as American Pie or using inappropriate comments. A definite **** rating, only marginally missing out on a 5.
