Wetlands.

A ragingly hormonal teen and her accidental "anal fissure" take center-stage in "Wetlands" a high-energy, unapologetically vulgar, take-me-or-leave-me screen version of Anglo-German author Charlotte Roche's controversial worldwide bestseller. Director David Wnendt and breakout star Carla Juri give full measure to the outre self-exploration of Roche's literary alter ego, Helen Memel, while capturing the underlying sweetness that helped endear the character to millions of readers. Result is a spiky, smartly packaged commercial enterprise as sure to score with mainstream audiences as it is to irk the cognoscenti.
