Read More: Sex and the Revolutionary Female Perspective in Marielle Heller's 'Diary of a Teenage Girl' As the "The Diary of a Teenage Girl" opens this weekend, we got to thinking about female coming-of-age films. The problem, though, is that there aren't many. And there are even fewer that treat sex with the same abandon as male-perspective movies. Where does it leave young women when the only onscreen representations they see are filtered through the male gaze? Here are five examples of films that dared to break the mold and show us teenage girls discovering sex — from their point of view.  1. "SomersaultCate Shortland's poignant debut is one of the most criminally under-seen movies of the past decade. This little 2004 Australian gem gave Abbie Cornish her breakout role as Heidi, a precocious sixteen-year-old who, after succumbing to the advances of her mother's boyfriend, leaves a toxic home environment »

15 May 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

First announced quietly last summer, it looks like things are starting to push ahead for Cate Shortland's next feature, "Berlin Syndrome." If you're not familiar with the filmmaker's work, be sure to check out "Somersault," which features a breakout performance by Abbie Cornish, and a really good turn by Sam Worthington, and her moody WWII picture "Lore."
