Storyline

Teenaged Jessie isn't like the rest of her highly religious family. While her sister is devoted to long distance running and her parents to their conservative Baptist church, Jessie is a bit too eager, a little bit adrift as she drives the dark night streets delivering newspapers. When Jessie finds herself pregnant without any memory of sex and determines that she is carrying the child of God, she disrupts the accepted roles and unquestioned order within her family and her entire small town. Rich with strange apparitions and mysterious women, but also with heartbreakingly simple human interactions, Deborah Kampmeier's magical and profound first feature explores the meaning of love, family, divinity, and the imagination.

Amazing Commentary On Religion and Society
20 June 2005 | by fake_plastic_wingsSee all my reviews

"Virgin" has to be one of the most simple, yet heart wrenching movies I have seen in years. Because of it's low budget, the story and characters really helps the movie flow.

Jessie is a small-town girl, who loves cigarettes and JD, with no religion, and a confused family. When she wakes up after a dance in the middle of the woods with no recollection of sex, Jessie is suddenly convinced she is carrying the child of god. With nobody supporting her, Jessie is forced to try and convince her god fearing town with her visions and instinct.

I cried through the last half hour. It may not have been visually stunning, but the story and characters made up for it. The director really brought up a good question, and makes the viewer ask themselves, "would we have believed Mary now?" I recommend this movie to anyone, religious or not.
