Thought-provoking
26 April 2018 | by sarahrvclaytonSee all my reviews

I went to see this film at the Leicester Square premiere in London last weekend & I'm glad I went. I had expected to find it more disturbing, but actually, for the most part, I was aware of what's going on in this sub-section of this and my own generation. As a 33 year old mother of young children, of course this content has the ability to scare... indeed, I grew up in a less extreme culture than the one depicted and I still felt the pressure (as I know did friends of both genders) to lose my virginity, and to experiment sexually at a young age in ways that were later regretted.

A documentary like this will always divide opinion, but at least it's getting people thinking about what they believe about the subject. No, it's not representative of the generation as a whole, but I think the overarching themes of lack of boundaries, and worth of both self and others (alongside a bunch of other themes) are pretty prevalent on a much wider scale.

The most valuable part of the experience for me was actually the Q&A afterwards. I originally felt defensive to see the lead male character on the panel, but actually I ended up glad he was there. He has clearly done a lot of growing up and has changed his life around dramatically. It gave me real hope against the backdrop of the film, that it is possible for this aspect of society to change and have greater appreciation of what truly has value.
