You won't believe it's a British film...
16 January 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Other than the presence of pop star Jess Conrad in the cast, there's no real way to tell that TOO YOUNG TO LOVE is a British film as it gets the American authenticity spot on. It's an above-average addition to the wave of 'sensation' films that had been going since the 1930s and which enjoyed a resurgence in popularity during the 1950s. The format of TOO YOUNG TO LOVE is a courtroom drama, with a middle aged bloke on trial for having underage sex with a 15 year old girl.

As you can guess from that description, TOO YOUNG TO LOVE must have been incredibly controversial for its time. Dialogue within the production is explicit and the situations alluded to are distinctly adult in tone (for example, when one character is described as having "laid a sailor"). It's also a well made little movie, with strong direction and performances, and one which seeks to get to the meat of its subject matter rather than shying away from anything too unsavoury. I thought it was a real surprise, and it's a film I'd recommend to those interested in exploring the genre as a product ahead of its time.
