Why 'The Diary Of A Teenage Girl' Is The Most Important Feminist Film Of 2015
"It’s hard to find a film that accurately and truthfully portrays the sexual experiences of a teenage girl – strange considering it’s a subject that concerns half of the world’s population. As such, Californian writer/director Marielle Heller’s astonishing debut film, The Diary Of A Teenage Girl, feels revolutionary in refusing to trivialise its characters’ natural feelings, while also deftly traversing such an emotional and ethical minefield." (Rhian Daly, NME)






The Diary of a Teenage Girl Should Be Required Viewing
And not just for teenage girls
"The first time Minnie Goetz (Bel Powley) has sex, she marks her lover with an “X,” triumphantly drawn from her own blood. She commands him to take her picture, curious about what a 15-year-old teenager looks like moments after losing her virginity." (Lisa Schwarzbaum, TIME)

The Diary of a Teenage Girl
Get ready for sex, drugs and a breakout performance in this extraordinary coming-of-age movie[…]
"Heller's film is saying that this is what it feels like for a girl. Deal with it. Powley is sensational, expertly blending hilarity and heartbreak. Her scenes with Wiig, sublime in her hard-won gravity, are unique and unforgettable. Just like the movie." (Peter Travers, ROLLINGSTONE)





'The Diary of a Teenage Girl' is vivid, even shocking, but a rare gem
"Big summer action movies can be thrilling, but if you really want to feel your heart pounding out of your chest, try being a 15-year-old girl for 101 minutes." (Rebecca Keegan, LA TIMES)

‘Diary of a Teenage Girl’ Is a Revolutionary Portrait of Adolescent Sexuality

"What’s perhaps most invigorating about Diary is its dead-set refusal to judge its protagonist, or condemn her to a lifetime of regret. She may be in thrall to Monroe, and may be manipulated by him, but at a certain point she’s manipulating him right back (and is ultimately the one who can put the kibosh on the whole thing). Movies about being young and sexual — movies which, yes, are usually made by men — tend to view an experience like Minnie’s as a sob story, an ordeal from which she shall never recover (whereas a young man in her shoes would chalk up such a fling as a rite of passage, to be checked off and learned from). Minnie, however, won’t have it. 'I refuse to be some sniveling crybaby,' she announces, in what begins as an confession but becomes her manifesto. 'I’m a woman, and this is my life.'" (Jason Bailey, FLAVORWIRE)








Absolutely in love with this film. I found myself relating to it countless times in ways no other film has touched me.  Yaaaas female filmmakers.  Yaaaas animated penises.  Show it some love, ONTD!  <3
