Alternate Versions

For the UK cinema version 59 secs was cut by the BBFC to remove shots of young Nick's chest being kissed by an equally young girl and images of a sleeping child during the sex scene between Casper and Jennie, as this footage contravenes the Protection Of Children Act. In August '99 the British Board of Film Classification awarded the film an 18 certificate for video distribution, but with 51 seconds of cuts. The same footage was removed and the scenes re-edited to avoid shots of the child, and this same version was later issued on DVD. See more »

* * * out of 4.
4 September 2002 | by brandonsites1981See all my reviews

At first this just may seem like a pointless slice of 24 hours in a teenager's life, but upon closer viewing it's points become very clear. The sex scenes are rather drawn out and some of the situations are very disturbing and very graphic, but there really is kids like this in real life. Film manages to make important statements about safe sex or avoiding sex all together, rape, and parental involvement. It's raw and it's shockingly realistic in it's treatment. A very important film.
