Three sentence movie reviews: Diary of a Teenage Girl
I loved the design of this movie, how the animations would sometimes take over the movie itself. I also thought it accurately captured a lot of the feelings and emotions that occur when young women become sexually active* (though thankfully, most of us aren’t sleeping with our mother’s boyfriends). There is a general out-of-control feeling, which is uncomfortable, but the total package is a winner.**
Where watched: at home
Cost: free from Netflix
*This is so rare to see on film!
**And I can’t wait to see more of Bel Powley. I’ll start with that Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret movie.

Yep, more NFS fare. I appreciate your commentary above and know how important such depictions (perhaps minus mother’s boyfriends) are for a society to see. The poster is kind of fun, too!
Did you review another movie with a similar title? Something about a 13-year-old girl? Perhaps it didn’t have a similar title at all and I’m just getting confused. I’m not familiar with Bel Powley but I like Kristen Wiig and Alexander Skarsgard. I’m intrigued.
That would be “Thirteen” directed by Catherine Hardwicke. (http://www.stenaros.com/?p=8188) Also quite good, if terrifying.
