This is a pretty good movie. About kids in school on the verge of having sex for the first time, and how the school tries to deal with sex education. We get to see all this through the eyes of Angela who refuses to be herded as are most of her schoolmates.
It was also funny to realize after a few scenes that they used the name of a local school of ours, and I've seen the face of the school portrayed in the outdoor scenes (but it is not Grant Park High School).
