The Beautiful Person -- Sixteen-year old Junie changes high school mid-year, following the death of her mother. She finds herself in the same class as her cousin Mathias, who introduces her to his friends. All the boys want to date Junie, and she chooses the quietest among them, Otto Cleves. But soon after, she encounters the great love of her life, Nemours, her Italian teacher. The passion that burns between them is, however, doomed. Junie refuses to give in to her feelings and persists in denying herself happiness, which in her eyes is merely illusory.

Awful, but Léa Seydoux Is Indeed Beautiful, 22 December 2014
Author: elision10 from United States

I know as an older American it may be I simply don't get at French high schoolers act these days. But even the adults in this film seem foolish. The characters are sketchily drawn, and the plot is thin with illogical twists and stretches that test your patience.

The one redeeming feature is Léa Seydoux. Her character may be unfathomable as the rest, but at least it's understandable why everyone keeps on falling in love with her. She's also a rather amazing actor; hard to tell it here but her performance in Blue Is the Warmest Color was terrific, and not because we get to see her naked a lot.

One other thing that bothered me about this film was that almost all the actors were so good-looking. I'm sure French high schools have a certain percentage of uglies as everywhere else.
