Pretty Persuasion Movie Synopsis & Plot
Kimberly Joyce is a shockingly cruel and sexy-beyond-her-years Beverly Hills teenager who will stop at nothing to become famous. Believing the world is an orchestra and she is the conductor, Kimberly masterfully manipulates all those around her. She convinces her two best friends to join her in a campaign against their befuddled teacher, Mr. Anderson, played to nebbishy perfection by Ron Livingston. Kimberly entangles the entire Beverly Hills community in her carefully woven web of seduction and deceit. A clever comedy with an ending that nobody but Kimberly can predict!

While most actresses her age are doing generic romantic comedies, Wood is choosing much darker and unique films. She landed on everyone's radar with the very-good "Thirteen," where many thought she should have been nominated for an Oscar, and is now the star of "Pretty Persuasion," an even darker and more disturbing film.
