The Diary of a Teenage Girl; 2015, R

This is an amazing and wonderful film. It is very sexual but it is not erotic. OK, don’t be creeped out. Here is the storyline. A 15 year old girl is having a sexual relationship with her mother’s boyfriend. However, she is not a victim. This is a coming of age film whose focus is on a young woman’s sexual energy and sexual pain. Bel Powley is brilliant in depicting this precocious and artistic young woman. This is one of the best coming of age films since The Breakfast Club. 4/5/16
