Storyline

This story is set in the "in-between" time of a girl's life, when she is no longer a child and not yet a woman. We open with our heroine, Maeve, putting on her new snow white bra, and stepping out into the world as a young woman. She has an obsession with breasts and bras and can't help but stare at other girls and women, even the head nun doesn't escape her gaze. Otherwise, her world revolves around her three friends, Ruth, Claire and Orla, who are more experienced in the ways of the world. They wear bras already (except Claire the feminist) and they've all had boyfriends. The new bra is a start but they really hope Maeve can find a fella, even offering kissing lessons to prepare her. What no one expects, least of all Maeve, is that she should snare the local sixteen-year old heartthrob. Maeve is so smitten with him that she lets her friends down when they need her the most. In trouble with her friends and in school, she gets dumped by the heartthrob when she sneaks into the local ... Written by Tommy Weir

Accurate and thoughtful
19 January 2010 | by (Dublin) – See all my reviews

I really liked this film. It brought back a lot of memories, especially going out with some eejit who you thought was cool and then to have your illusions sorely shattered.

My family thought it was boring when screened on TV but I loved the little observational gems like the posh drunk in the chip shop and the two little punks trying to score acid in the park.

I recognised a lot of the locations as places I used to hang out in my teens.All of the four girls were brilliant especially as the film progressed, they really grew into their roles, particularly the girl whose father is the taxi driver.

It is a slow moving film and nothing much really happens but the beauty of the film is in the development of the characters, their relationships and emotions and of course the detail in the costumes, hair, houses etc. Was disappointed when it finished, would have gladly spent more time in the four girls company.
