Inspired by events that took place in Massachusetts, Delphine and Muriel Coulin's provocative debut focuses on a group of bored teenage girls who all make an irrevocable pact. When Camille (Louise Grinberg) accidentally becomes pregnant, she encourages her friends and fellow high school classmates to follow suit. It's only a matter of time, before 17 girls in the high school are pregnant and the town is thrown into a world of chaos. Set in the writer/directors' small, seaside hometown of Lorient in Brittany, 17 Girls is a reflection on adolescence, body image, friendship and the perplexing realities of growing up.

The Gay Community refused to close the Bath Houses--major spreaders of the disease. The egos at the National Institute of Health were terrified they wouldn't win a Nobel Prize. A great study of how fear makes human beings stupid.

Despite the disturbing implications that the main characters commit, their metaphorical implications make the movie all the more potent when viewed under a different shade. Topped by charismatic performances, witty dialogue, and a thrillingly original narrative flips the movie's unpleasant subject matter into a clever, entertaining, and engaging piece of cinema.

Luke M (es) wrote: The script isn't remarkable, it's been done dozens of times (including just last year in The Wrestler), but Maggie Gyllenhaals impressive turn, some really catchy music, and Jeff Bridges' remarkable performance push the film forward through a sometimes dreary plot.
