Back in mid-2008 the news ran with a peculiar story coming out of Gloucester High School in Massachusetts, wherein 18 girls were pregnant at the same time. Controversy brewed as to whether this was an intentional pact or not, surrounding 17 girls getting pregnant after finding out one of their friends were. Nothing was ever officially confirmed, but since the French always do things better, they went ahead and made a feature film based on the events.

Sisters Delphine Coulin and Muriel Coulin premiered 17 Girls back at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival and now after being acquired by Strand Releasing, it will finally hit theaters this fall and we’ve got the first trailer. Thankfully this one looks to be more interesting, visually and thematically, than its Lifetime spin-off counterpart. Check it out below for the film starring Louise Grinberg (who already got some high school experience in the excellent The Class), Juliette Darche, »
