Lila wants to emulate the sexual exploits of her more experienced best friend. She fixates on a tough older guy who will "sleep with anyone" and tries to insert herself into his world, putting herself in a dangerously vulnerable situation.

This is a masterpiece reminded me of the great Federico Fellini, everything about it was masterful. The scenes were taken to the right ending whereas most go just a bit too far , but this is a work of art. The acting was superb as well as the writing which is far more critical to get. This work demonstrates like no other what many young people are faced with coming of age and the fear and unknown but also the compelling need to know . I look forward to more from this director writer She has a gift the world needs for its advancement
if this movie is any indication
