movieguide.org Christian reviews
Illeana Douglas: I think that Phillip and Enid can help us to see that there are many different ways we can express ourselves. We can do things like these cartoons that are amusing as a sort of a light entertainment, or we can do work that is more serious… in scope, in feeling, and that deals with issues… emotional, spiritual, political… of great importance. Who is responsible for this?
Ashley Peldon: I am.
Illeana: Talk to us about it.
Ashley: It’s my response to the issue of a woman’s right to choose. It’s something I feel super strongly about.
Illeana: Isn’t this a wonderful piece, class? This definitely falls into that higher category of art.
Abortion is a theme too – her art teacher’s movie is about the dialation and cutterage method of abortion and is titled “Mirror, Father, Mirror”.

Those opposed to abortion might not like a piece of artwork one girl has fashioned that’s about a woman’s right to choose and is comprised of various coat hangers all bent together.
Other memorable performances include Illeana Douglas as Enid’s self-important art teacher, a politically correct feminist who praises coat-hanger collages.
