Cinemascope:The Diary of a Teenage Girl

Cinemascope is a regular blog post where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2015.

Plot line: In 1970s San Francisco, a precocious 15-year-old (Bel Powley) embarks on an enthusiastic sexual odyssey, beginning with her mother's current lover (Alexander Skarsgård).

This coming of age story is not easy to watch, but the honesty of the telling is so dang compelling. There are lots of stories of the sexual awakenings of boys, but can you watch this one without judgement? All the while I was cringing, I could not look away. So many issues raised with this one.

This is movie is based on a graphic memoir, and I've added the book to my to be read pile.

You can see the trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is a movie worth watching.

Fun is not the word I'd use, but it is worth watching indeed.
