This Marching Girl Thing

Release date: October 01, 1995
Directed by: Kelli Simpson
Written by: Kelli Simpson

Running time: 19 minutes

Toni Collette plays Cindy, baton-twirler extraor­dinaire but whose twisting twirling feats go beyond the stage. A homespun lad, a grooving gal, a daddy cop and a bunch of leotards full of frilled-out twirlettes all make up Cindy's spectacle. Her dazzle is adolescent verve meeting the grown up getting a grip on herself. This drama of crafted and shifting attentions plays to an exquisite rhythm.
