One of ‘s very best performances is in this creepy modern spin on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. She plays a mysterious drifter who crash lands into the life of a prep schooler (an excellent ) and proceeds to fascinate both him and his friends while staying in his dorm room to recover from a recent car accident. Stacy Cochran’s little-known indie isn’t something worth rushing out for, but its more delicate moments are memorable and Ryder’s graceful touches make it even more so.
