Storyline

Jane, a high school senior, feels like she doesn't belong either in the ultra-conservative suburbs where she lives with her always arguing parents, or downtown if only because some of her colleagues at the Victoria, the downtown art house movie theater where she works, are constantly reminding her that she's from the suburbs. On an impromptu date with Steve, the "friend of a friend", Jane loses her virginity. The entire experience, which was both emotionally and physically bad, leaves Jane with bad taste about sex largely because she knows that Steve orchestrated the date to include sex without telling her. Beyond Matt - Steve's best friend - who she considers a boor, blowhard and drunkard, Jane confides in all her colleagues at the theater who she surveys about their first sexual experiences, those discussions when she learns their different and often misguided views of sex: Dave, her slightly older gay boss, whose first was somewhat different in he exploring his sexuality at the ...

Important! Sexy! Real!
9 June 2003 | by elle_802001See all my reviews

I thought this movie was really bold. Yeah, this was a first feature for the film maker. Hopefully we'll see more projects from her in the future. This movie was really important to me. It rang very true. If I saw this movie in my preteens I would have been *WAY* more informed about sex. The film makes it okay for a chic to be in control of her sex life. How many films have shown a girl how to get off-- and not from or for a man's perspective? Don't get me wrong. The sex scenes

were not only only hot but they were awkward, very true to life. Very much like a first time. I loved this movie. My friends and I cheered at the end.
