Screen captures from the 20th minute and 10th second* of 2010 films as we close out the celluloid year by February's end.
Trashy Mom: I'm havin friends around later. I need you to stay in your rooms or get out. No kids -- the pair of ya!
Loud Preteen Daughter: What makes you think we want to hang around wi' your friend anyway? All those winos and skanks!
Sullen Teen Daughter: [silence]
I'm not sure I could pinpoint exactly why but I love Kierston Wareing as the single mom in Fish Tank (her angry daughters are going to grow up to be just like her) but maybe it's the absence of malevolence in her, just naturalistically portrayed selfish skankiness. She isn't out to hurt her children like so many terrible screen parents. She's just completely ill suited for the job.
*I can't vouch for the time stamp damnit (!) as my two DVD players don't seem to line up timing wise. Argh. I love this series but I need it to be exact for OCD's sake.
