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 »

Entertaining mixture of documentary with romance-comedy
10 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

"Educating Julie" is part documentary, part romantic comedy, and mostly fun.

It should be noted up front that this is a picture about nudism and nudists, and lots of people of all ages and both sexes are seen naked. That includes Gail Ward, the fetching blond who plays the title role.

Julie is a British college girl who researches nudism for a sociology class project. That gives her the opportunity to visit several nudist resorts and interview some of the members. That's the documentary part.

The romance-comedy part centers around Julie and her boyfriend, and how they cope with their different attitudes toward nudism.
