Silly, sweet, farcical and subversive, Pumpkin pushes the boundaries of teen melodrama to an absurd pitch, resulting in a film that is bracing, hilariously funny, and quite often, "and in unexpected ways," touching" (A.O. Scott, The New York Times)

Sexy Carolyn McDuffy (Christina Ricci) has the perfect life - a good family, a top sorority, and a hot boyfriend - until she meets the "not so perfect" Pumpkin (Hank Harris), a "challenged" discus thrower who touches her soul and turns her life upside down. Suddenly smitten, Carolyn finds herself embroiled in a culture clash that will make you laugh "with humor, with recognition and with disbelief" (Roger Ebert) as you follow her hysterical journey from popular insider.... to ostracized outcast!
