Plot – Spoilers:
Young Judith gets a new camera and unwittingly chronicles the breakdown of her family.
Early on, the family is buzzing over moving to a new place by the beach that Dad is confident they can afford with his upcoming promotion and all. Judith is the only one not too keen, because she fancies the older girl next door. But she anyway goes along with the plan, mostly because Dad, whom she loves, seems so excited about it all.
Dad takes his role as the head of the family and provider very seriously and often appears to be trying too hard to fit in with the rest, though everyone around puts this down to his failed ambitions at being a comedian on TV.
But Dad has been lying to try and colour a bleak future and the pressure of expectation makes him increasingly isolated and hostile.
In a glut of found-footage movies from that decade, Exhibit A manages to find a memorable spot for itself, somewhere.
