Palindromes is a 2004 indie adventure comedy movie, written and directed by Todd Solondz. In the movie, Emani Sledge, Valerie Shusterov, Hannah Freiman, Rachel Corr, Will Denton, Sharon Wilkins, Shayna Levine, and Jennifer Jason Leigh all star as Aviva Victor, an awkward, sensitive thirteen year old girl whose greatest wish is to become a mother. Her sensible parents, Joyce Victor (Ellen Barkin) and Steve Victor (Richard Masur), are completely against the idea of having their little girl become pregnant, however, and do all they can to thwart her plans, especially after she comes frighteningly close to achieving her goal. Aviva not give up, however, and runs away so that she may go about her mission without the interference of her parents. She ends up finding herself in an alternate, less sensible, world, in which she journeys from New Jersey to Ohio to Kansas and back, learning a lot about herself and the world in the process. Palindromes was nominated for a 2006 Producers Award and a 2004 Golden Lion Award.moreless
