La Rebelle

A rich Haitian teen (Nathalie Ambroise), bored by her untroubled life of leisure, falls in with a clique of troublemaking dilettantes who only want her money; when her widowed father falls in love with a white business associate, the resentful daughter lashes out, accelerating her predictable descent. Sacha Parisot's formulaic coming-of-age story (2006) offers few surprises other than the jarring reminder that Haiti has a fabulously wealthy overclass; the only hint otherwise is two servants supplying comic relief. Fine performances from the ensemble cast boost this otherwise tepid video drama. In French with subtitles. 93 min.
