Storyline

Thirteen year old Audrey Shaw is new to Bellweather, California and certain she'll never fit in when she meets Krista Rich, the pretty, popular girl she aspires to be "or be with" - she's just not sure. Set against the backdrop of abstinence education and presented as Audrey's real life documentary assembled entirely from her own video clips, instant messages and cell phone cam (as well as those of her classmates and internet friends), Sex and The U.S.A. is a scripted drama about two teenage girls torn between Americas popular culture, where twelve year olds bear skin, breast implants are a Sweet Sixteen gift and George W. Bush's Evangelical right prizes virginity. Where natural urges of adolescence are at best dismissed, at worst, demonized and either way, taught in public schools. Without sex education or parents who are willing to talk about sex, Audrey and Krista are faced with a difficult task: to remain virgins while acting like whores. Like many American girls, this quest leads... Written by Jan Wellmann

It's like Grease for Gen-Y!
21 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good script. The worst casting I've seen in a long time. Not a one of the actors playing teenagers is convincing under the age of 25, much less under the age of 15 - which is the age of the kids in this movie. The rich, cool, pretty 14 year old girl is played by a transvestite or something like that. It's worth it to see because the script is good, but that's about it.

I know what bugged me - it's like the filmmakers thought that kids who behaved this way had to be ugly and coarse. It's like a class thing, y'know. No genuinely pretty, cool 14 year old girl who did these things could be actually charming and likable. While the actress (who is closing in on 30 and doesn't really look like a transvestite) that plays Krista, is quite likable, there is nothing likable about the way she played that character. She's a tough,nasty child, with no personal charm and the demeanor of a stripper who hands out lap dances to her landlord when she's late on rent. I just don't buy that girl as a very privileged 14 year old. She's like a junkie in Needle Park or something. I shouldn't pick on that actress either, because all of them are way too old, and none of them are charming.

I think it would have been a lot better if the director had figured out how to stage things so that he could have used real teenagers, rather than 40 year olds.

But the script is really good. Don't see it for the movie. See it for the screenplay.
