Based on the Phoebe Gloeckner novel of the same name, the new film The Diary of a Teenage Girl is a tale of growing up female in America. Writen and directed by Marielle Heller, the film follows a young heroine as she unlocks what it means to be a woman.
Here’s the Official Synopsis:
Like most teenage girls, Minnie Goetze (Bel Powley) is longing for love, acceptance and a sense of purpose in the world. Minnie begins a complex love affair with her mother’s (Kristen Wiig) boyfriend, “the handsomest man in the world,” Monroe Rutherford (Alexander Skarsgård). What follows is a sharp, funny and provocative account of one girl’s sexual and artistic awakening, without judgment.
