How I Killed My Father

How I Killed My Father

Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson directs this bold tale about two girls' obsessive friendship. When introvert schoolgirl Pauline (Melanie Lynskey) meets the beautiful and self-confident Juliet (Kate Winslet, in her big screen debut), the two form a deep emotional relationship -- so deep, their parents plot a plan to separate them. Juliet's father will send her to South Africa to continue her studies, and Pauline's folks wouldn't let her come. Suddenly, Pauline knows just what to do: kill her mother. Set in the 1950s, the film exudes a creepy yet classy feel that makes the story seem so real. The homosexual implications add a gripping touch, and may have possibly gotten it nominated for an Oscar in 1995.
