Ultimately she ends up losing her virginity to an older artist wanna-be who she has had a long standing crush on. Written by

Okay, this was not light entertainment, as so many teenager flicks are. Perhaps I am biased, because it is set in a place and time not too different from my own high school years, but this rang true to my recollections of HS. certainly better than Sixteen Candles, Say anything, etc.. (not that I don't enjoy those movies, but...) This was a less polished Breakfast Club, without the sappy smarmy feel good ending. Mostly.
Ms. Weil was very engaging, attractive enough and very believable, without being the usual beauty queen female lead common to HS films. Particularly revealing was the two girls talking about her loss of virginity, when she says "It felt really good at first. Then he put it in." and her friend replies "yeah, it does kind of hurt. Unless you're drunk." Not great wisdom, but probably recalls many girls first experiences.
