Goofs

While Julie is looking through magazines for something to do a thesis on, a piece of equipment starts moving into and out of view. It first happens after "That's what it's all about, babe" is said. It continues when Steve began encouraging Julie's nudism idea, such as when he tried to show her his magazine but she shoved it away. See more »

Quotes

Good, but not overly brilliant movie about nudism in the 1980s
25 May 2010 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

There are not too many feature films made about nudism and naturism these days, but in its day this was hailed as one of the best. Looking at it today it does look rather dated with the hairstyles and the devices that they used (e.g. dial phones and typewriters). It's a very straightforward story: young sociology student Julie Potter is set a thesis to write for her masters, and she is tricked into doing it about 'Nudity in the 80's' to the scorn of her classmates. After her boyfriend offers to help her out with it, they both explore the world of nudism and how it works. The acting is good, but hardly that of an Academy Award standard. Julie is an initially shy and mousy person prior to doing the thesis and becoming a nudist changes her personality and outlook radically. For people who often criticise and stereotype nudists as being a bunch of cranky old pagan hippie swingers, this film does a lot to dispel those stereotypes as they are shown to be your everyday people who just like to bare it all in the sun on the weekends with no other motives. Unpretentious and unsensational in the main, it's one that naturist movie buffs rather than the general public will enjoy for the most part if only for the nostalgia value.
