Dir. Karyn Kusama. U.S., 2009, 102 mins. DCP. With Amanda Seyfried, Megan Fox, Adam Brody, J. K. Simmons, Amy Sedaris. Kusama and writer Diablo Cody’s cult classic teen movie puts codependency and female friendship on the chopping block. High schooler Jennifer (Fox), hot and popular—and now cursed and exploited—sees her childhood bond with the meeker Needy (Amanda Seyfried) pivoting to obsession. Believing that Jennifer has been possessed, Needy seeks to save her friend, but must examine how their inequitable dynamic has played out over their lives. Featuring Cody’s signature droll and idiosyncratic dialogue and a performance from a scintillating Fox that exudes sharpness and fiery charisma, Jennifer’s Body is the ultimate ode to toxic femininity.
