Plot & Details

Seventeen-year-old Daniela is obsessed with sex. But her self-proclaimed "pussy in flames" is in direct conflict with her well-to-do, strict evangelical family in Santiago, Chile. She finds an outlet by detailing her naughty ruminations and exploits on her blog "Young & Wild" to her eager online followers. She dates handsome and pious Tomas, but maybe Antonia, the really cute girl at work, is more her speed. As she struggles to balance both relationships, Daniela learns that having it all--sex, love and eternal salvation--is more complicated than she ever imagined.

Marialy Rivas masterfully directs her first feature, which premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival where Rivas and co-writer Camila Gutierrez (on whose life the film is based) picked up the World Cinema Screenwriting Award. Rooted in a fearless and unforgettable performance by Alicia Rodriguez, 'Young & Wild' is a stunning, energetic look at family and youth culture in contemporary Chile.
