"House of D," which marks David Duchovny's writing and directing feature debut, is a heartfelt coming of age story, set in 1973, that takes its title from the old Women's House of Detention in Greenwich Village. On the cusp of 13, Anton Yelchin's Tommy strikes up an acquaintance with one of its inmates (Erykah Badu), who shouts down advice to him from her solitary confinement in the massive, now demolished Romanesque Revival landmark. Tommy needs all the advice he can get.
