Fullerton College--WILSHIRE AUDITORIUM
Paloma is a serious and highly articulate but deeply
bored 11-year-old who has decided to kill herself on her
12th birthday. Fascinated by art and philosophy, she
questions and documents her life and immediate circle,
drawing trenchant and often hilarious observations on
the world around her. But as her appointment with
death approaches, Paloma finally meets some kindred
spirits in her building's grumpy janitor and an enigmatic,
elegant neighbor, both of whom inspire Paloma to
question her rather pessimistic outlook on life.
After the movie we will get together for a drink in Downtown Fullerton.
