Helen is an unruly young woman who’s fascinated with everything disturbing and perverted. She’s anal-obsessed and loves to do things her mother warned her against – including unsanitary things with public toilet seats. Vegetables are seldom used as food, and her pizza fantasy will make you rethink delivery. Helen’s openness makes those around her uncomfortable, though there’s something refreshing about her that makes it hard not to like her. When shaving, she cuts herself, causing a complication that sends her to the hospital. Her parents are unfazed by her behavior and seem bothered at having to visit. This brings out a more emotional side of Helen. Underneath the gross sexual antics and drugs is a fragile girl dealing with a very dark secret. Wetlands is an extremely wild ride that constantly pushes the limits with its antics, but has the intelligence and heart to back it all up. –Cleveland International Film Festival
