Trivia

The classroom scenes were shot at Lincoln Middle School in Alameda, CA. Although the film crew were given permission to shoot in the school, the school staff objected to the content of the script and insisted no filming be done at any time when students could possibly be on campus. As such, the classroom scenes were shot on a single night, with lights outside the windows to give the appearance of daytime. See more »

The music makes the movie soar....
21 January 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Been hopelessly hooked, for the past several days now, to the captivating selection of 1970s pop that forms the music soundtrack of The Diary of a Teenage Girl.

The film itself, about a teenage girl discovering and embracing sex amidst the Bohemian surroundings of 1970s San Francisco, impressed me for its rare honesty, its vibrancy, and the wonderful music soundtrack that accompanies the film's moods. Phoebe Gloeckner's searing and much acclaimed 2002 graphic novel comes to screen with a careful selection of eclectic tracks from the 1960s-70s that make the film soar at times. The film is not for the prudish and easily shocked though. And that includes the nannies at the Academy who have completely shut out this indie from this years Oscar nominations!
