Girl is a 1998 American drama film starring Dominique Swain, Christopher Masterson, Selma Blair, Tara Reid, Summer Phoenix, Portia de Rossi and Sean Patrick Flanery. It was based on the novel of the same name, written by Blake Nelson. It was written by Blake Nelson and David E. Tolchinsky and directed by Jonathan Kahn.


Andrea Marr (Dominique Swain) is a bright, straight-A, mature, 18-year-old high school senior on the verge of womanhood who decides to abandon her sheltered life in rural Washington, leaving with her bookish friend Darcy (Selma Blair) for a look into the local rock and roll scene in Portland, Oregon. There she meets local rock singer Todd Sparrow (Sean Patrick Flanery), with whom she has a groupie fling. Aspiring rock star Cybil (Tara Reid) and fellow student (and outgoing fellow groupie) Rebecca (Summer Phoenix) guide Andrea.
