THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL

Double Feature with GIRLHOOD

(2015) dir Marielle Heller w/Bel Powley, Kristen Wiig, Alexander Skarsgård [102 min; DCP]
Like most teenage girls, Minnie Goetze (Powley) is longing for love, acceptance and a sense of purpose in the world. Minnie begins a complex love affair with her mother’s boyfriend Monroe (Skarsgård), “the handsomest man in the world.” What follows is a sharp, funny and provocative account of one girl’s sexual and artistic awakening presented without judgment.

★★★★ “‘The Diary of a Teenage Girl’ is a breakthrough moment in the culture in that it depicts youthful female sexuality … not just with the unapologetic frankness the boys usually get, but with an awareness of all the places a girl’s urges will take her.” – Ty Burr, The Boston Globe

“A startlingly tough, authentic depiction of budding womanhood.” – Elaine Teng, The New Republic

“Seldom has teenage sexual awakening been covered from a female perspective – with a fickle alternating confidence, self-doubt and voracious appetite – quite so frankly or delicately.” – Nathalie Atkinson, Globe and Mail

“Despite the fact that it prominently features statutory rape and a girl sleeping with her mother’s boyfriend, DIARY isn’t shocking or upsetting; in fact, it’s really fun.” – Eliza Rosenberry, Brattle Film Notes
