The story of Joanna, a 14-year-old girl who feels pressured by her peers to lose her virginity. The story, told primarily from her point of view, follows her as she self-destructs, becoming involved in a world of sex, drugs and betrayal. Including graphic and sometimes violent underage sex scenes, the film portrays an occassionally exaggerated but nonetheless disturbing and thought-provoking view of teenage sexuality. Written by
I remember watching this film when it came on channel 4. I found it very intriguing to say the least . It is quite shocking and i would say the British equivalent to 'Thirteen' but better. i recommend it, but prepare to be taken on a roller-coaster ride of emotions.I would say the acting is superb also as the emotions and determination of the characters is believable,although the story lines may seem far fetched through the eyes of those who live a more conservative life to which they may be may be appalled by the extremities that the the characters especially the main character goes through.It is sad to consider that the pressures faced on teens is truthfully as extreme as it was portrayed in this film.Excellent viewing if you are into British raw gritty down to earth documentary style narratives like me!BRITS KNOW HOW TO DO IT BEST!!
