The Lollipop Girls Struggle on the Hard Earth

trailer for the film here

 

The Lollipop Girls Struggle on the Hard Earth is about the rupture that begins when one leaves the state of childhood and becomes a subject in the symbolic order (an adult). Itís about trying to get something back that we never had. As adults, we regularly face an awareness that what we hoped for isnít there. Madeline returns to the lush innocence of childhood but instead finds herself in a spectacle, a sumptuous world that resembles her youthful conception of what being an adult would be like. And since a little girlís pretends feel perfectly real, Madeline gets lost in the surreal province of make believe. Making sense of what is real and what isnít brings her face to face with the sum of her life and what she cannot escape.
