...The Dead Girl (2006)

The Dead Girl is the multi-layered story of circumstances surrounding the discovery of the titular corpse. An excellent cast (including Toni Collette, Piper Laurie, Mary Steenburgen, Nick Searcy, Mary Beth Hurt, Giovanni Ribisi, Josh Brolin, Kerry Washington, Robin Byrne, and many more) act the hell out of writer/director Karen Moncrieff's script of five vignettes that unfold the crime. It's not an easy watch (and I also mean that literally as the film is not lit brightly) but it is fascinating.
