It is a French drama directed by 'In the House' director which chronicles a teenage girl's sexual exploration. A plain story, but well transformed into a movie with good cast and performances.
The subject briefs how a girl can slip away from her actual goal when life filled with loneliness. Sometimes within the family, the negligence of parents puts their children pick wrong path. As the result they move on the way they encounter in a life junction. In such style this movie travels where a girl from this story begin to engage in sexual activities which makes feel her emptiness go away apart from her good companion, her little brother.
With the help of todays technology it is not hard to find the desired one and to conceal from others. It is nothing like the few decades ago, now, the young people can cleanly cover up the wrongdoing from their parents. So this movie can be useful to study about the teenager character behaviours.
Very clever performance by character Isabelle. Her seductive facial look makes men stick firm with the movie till the end. It had no puzzle to solve like the director's earlier movie, but used teenager to portray her issues in four seasons. As the change of one season to another kind of failed to transform character together which made tough to understand.
Bringing up emotions and family to solve the final portion was a nice patch. Overall, the simple concept was illustrated in a satisfactory manner. The 'Young & Beautiful' was neither about a nymphomaniac nor prostitution, but kind of exploiting both to depict how a modern day secret societal system work.
