DIRECTOR: Marielle Heller STARRING: Bel Powley, Alexander Skarsgård, Kristen Wiig, Abby Wait, Miranda Bailey, Carson D. Mell, John Parsons, Madeleine Waters, Austin Lyon, Quinn Nagle, Davy Clements, Christopher Meloni USA 2015


Boldly unconventional and refreshingly honest, breaking some boundaries and already making some waves. The Diary of a Teenage Girl is a rare gem of a movie. Set in 1976 San Francisco, this is an amazing, tender and expressive story of a teenage girl coming to terms with her sexualtiy and the finding her own place in the world. Very detailed and intimate, The Diary of a Teenage Girl is a vibrant and frank story, where Minnie Goetze (Bel Powley) begins a complex love affair with her mother’s (Kristen Wiig) boyfriend, Monroe (Alexander Skarsgård). Based on Phoebe Gloeckner’s novel of the same name, The Diary of a Teenage Girl is brutally honest, an unconventional punk rock realistic self-discovery teenager through adulthood journey.
