Tracey Berkowitz, 15, a self-described normal girl, loses her 9-year old brother, Sonny. In flashbacks and fragments, we meet her overbearing parents and the sweet, clueless Sonny. We watch Tracey navigate high school, friendless, picked on and teased. She develops a thing for Billy Zero, a new student, imagining he's her boyfriend. We see the day she loses Sonny and we watch her try to find him. In bits and pieces, we see what leads up to her riding in the back of a city bus wrapped in a shower curtain. Coming of age, or just surviving? Written by

Men buy girls panties. Myra Bernie told me. Girls in school like me. Unpopular girls, girls with big tits, girls with regular tits and girls with no tits at all. The men don't even care. Panties just come out of a machine like chocolate bar. The men take them home and cuddle them like a little kitten. She told me. Myra Bernie. Because her parents heard it at a party. I don't care. I don't even like panties. The word sickens me.

The Tracey Fragments is a wonderful movie which everyone should all see
for the experience. Most of the movie is split between three or more
different camera angles. This allows the viewer to watch the movie in
many different perspectives. Where this can be confusing at times, I
found it wonderful and unique! I had such a blast watching this movie
and trying to see every frame at least once.
The beginning of the movie will leave your head spinning for a good
20-30 minutes. Picture an empty time-line and as the movie progresses,
you get to know a little from the beginning, a little from the end, a
little of the middle, and repeat it until the movie finishes. It's
bizarre but an experience.
One great portion of the film are the little scenes when you get dumped
into Tracey's fantasy world. Sometimes you can tell it's a fantasy and
sometimes you cannot. However, this then leads the viewer to wonder if
future scenes are real or just a fantasy.
The highlight of the film, in my opinion, is Tracey's 'back of the bus'
confessions. Throughout the movie, Tracey will pop in the movie,
dressed in a shower curtain, and give a little hint or just some
insight into her somewhat confused mind. It gives you a short break
from the non-linear chaos of the film and sometimes will give you a
All in all, Ellen Page yet again shows how great of an actor she really
is. Her acting in this movie blows Hard Candy and Juno out of the
water! The movie is all about her and I don't believe that there isn't
a scene without her. I find this great because you can truly focus on
the main character and her story, rather than any subplots or
supporting character development. The Tracey Fragments is a must see
