New Directors – Teenage Girl, Glum Comedian

New Directors/New Films (March 18-29)

New Directors/New Films rolls out today with the New York premiere of The Diary of a Teenage Girl, directed and adapted by Marielle Heller from Phoebe Gloeckner’s graphic novel. At Sundance the drama of a young girl’s coming of age in the 1970’s  was an overwhelming favorite.  And unlike much of this festival’s program, it will surely make it to commercial screens, from Sony Classics.
