  • A fascinating contemplation of adolescent sexuality that will be a star-making platform for its young lead, Marine Vacth. show more

  • Filmmaker Francois Ozon is a young writer/director known for provocative work with mature stars — Kristin Scott Thomas was in his last picture, Catherine Deneuve in the one before that. And in Young and Beautiful, he establishes that you don't have to be young to be beautiful by having a still stunning Charlotte Rampling drop by to give his young star a life lesson. Or six. show more

  • Taken as a whole, the movie is far-fetched and even faintly ridiculous; and yet, in the moment to moment, it's compelling and truthful. show more

    Marine Vacth is wonderful as Isabelle, a 17-year old girl just discovering the power of her sexuality. Power is intoxicating, and she becomes intoxicated by it, turning tricks as a naïve prostitute, all the while juggling the normal lives of a 17-year old: senior year in high school, looming adulthood, the opposite sex, spreading one's wings, and a thirst for adventure beyond the safety of home. As young athletes who sign multi-million dollar contracts to play professional sports do not know how to handle immediate fame and fortune, Isabelle is at once confused, conflicted, and thrilled by her own new-found "fame and fortune." The movie doesn't judge, it just offers a glimpse into one girl's attempts to come to terms with the sexual world into which she's been thrust. And, she reserves the right to constantly change her mind. It's a gem! (Reviewed by Midnight)
