More Detail:

ALL OVER ME is a teenage lesbian coming-out story which glosses over the devastation caused by teenage involvement in excessive sex and drugs. Created by the same people who made THE INCREDIBLY TRUE ADVENTURES OF 2 GIRLS IN LOVE, ALL OVER ME is another low-budget movie that attempts to woo young teenage girls into lesbianism before they even gain their moral bearings.

Though not hit with an ugly stick, 15-year-old Claude (Alison Folland) thinks she is unattractive. Her life consists of working at a nearby pizza parlor in the Hell’s Kitchen section of Manhattan and hanging out with her blonde buddy Ellen (Tara Subkoff). Claude lives with her single mom in a low-rent apartment with Ellen staying over frequently because of family and boyfriend trouble. Ellen’s boyfriend Mark (Cole Hauser) is a rotten kid, who treats her badly and gives her drugs. In fact, Mark is shown to be very angry and potentially violent.

When a young homosexual, named Luke (Pat Briggs), moves into a nearby apartment, Claude becomes friends with him. Mark, however, dislikes him. Soon, it is reported that Luke has been murdered, and of course, Claude suspects Mark. The murder and horrible living conditions in Hell’s Kitchen causes Claude to become sexually attracted to Ellen, and Ellen gives her some affection. Yet, Ellen clearly has allegiances to Mark, causing Claude to distrust her friend. For awhile, Claude stays away from Ellen and seeks the affections of a pink-haired punkette. The movie ends rather abruptly when Claude snitches on Mark to the police, who take him away, leaving Ellen alone, and Claude in the arms of her new lover.

Shot and paced in “cinema verité” style, this movie attempts to be profound, shocking and relevant, but instead it ends up uninvolving and stale. While the two leading ladies demonstrate some acting talent, their plight isn’t woven with care. All the supporting roles give realistic, but perfunctory performances including Claude’s mother and Mark and Claude’s homosexual co-worker. It is difficult to sympathize with Ellen who clings to Mark despite his mistreatment of her. Claude certainly is the more complex personality, but her “crush” on Ellen and subsequent lesbianism overwhelms the fundamental elements which create her present circumstances. Hell’s Kitchen seems like a horrible place in which to grow up, but the film makers seem to say that Claude’s sexual preference is merely a summation of unpleasant living circumstances, no father and too much fat.

Most moviegoers will find this lesbian love story in the middle of urban blight too repulsive and trite to tolerate. There are many lesbian scenes which slow the story down, while they avoid real questions and real answers. ALL OVER ME is “KIDS light”: all the immorality, but no message and no real shock.
