Storyline

Teenaged Jessie isn't like the rest of her highly religious family. While her sister is devoted to long distance running and her parents to their conservative Baptist church, Jessie is a bit too eager, a little bit adrift as she drives the dark night streets delivering newspapers. When Jessie finds herself pregnant without any memory of sex and determines that she is carrying the child of God, she disrupts the accepted roles and unquestioned order within her family and her entire small town. Rich with strange apparitions and mysterious women, but also with heartbreakingly simple human interactions, Deborah Kampmeier's magical and profound first feature explores the meaning of love, family, divinity, and the imagination.

lose your virginity again and again
11 August 2004 | by (new york) – See all my reviews

Virgin is a touching movie that shows the path of a rebellious young woman who regains her sense of self worth and inner strength through coping with an extremely traumatic experience. I went to this film thinking the plot was intriguing: a girl who is raped while she's passed out, discovers she's pregnant, and with no memory of the rape-thinking she's still a virgin- assumes it to be immaculate conception. Here's a girl who's no victim, she works a night job delivering papers and even cares for an older woman with an abusive husband. Yet she's no cat woman or uma thurman in kill bill. In short, she's a female lead women can relate to.

This film is worth seeing not only for its dramatic merit; it is also a piece of simplistic yet beautiful imagery. There is an artistry to the scenes filmed in nature that is so rarely seen in low budget films. Birds act for the camera, water flows throughout scenes, and the landscape opens up to reveal the natural world as a picturesque backdrop to highlight the acting. The acting itself is touching and spellbinding. Elisabeth Moss, playing the lead role of Jessie, was well worth watching as she acted simply with great poise but with a turmoil of emotion showing behind her eyes.

See this movie! Lose your virginity! Have something to talk about! -ajn218
