Movie Info

Na´ve teen Gili (Sivan Levy) changes schools and is determined to improve her social status by hooking up with the most popular guys. But as she pushes her own limits with every new encounter - offering a succession of sexual favors and allowing herself to be photographed and filmed- the line of consent begins to blur. Israeli filmmaker Jonathan Gurfinkel's provocative debut is raw, racy, and immediately recognizable. (c) Tribeca

The movie's observations of the wolf pack mentality of privileged teenage boys who view every conquest as proof of their prowess is casually devastating.

The movie unfolds in six acts, each one advancing the progressive degradation of a vulnerable girl seeking acceptance.

S#x Acts works as a crash course in sexual ethics, but it also fails to transcend its genre trappings as a morality tale about the dangers of low self-esteem.

It is a powerful and disturbing essay of exposure and vulnerability in the brave new world.

An effective observant social conscious but ugly modern-day drama about privileged youth.

S#x Acts is admirable for its intentions; the execution, on the other hand, comes up short.

Probably a lot of people who see this film will get fed up with Gili's passivity, but some people in life are passive in a way that feels like a defiantly inactive reaction to ill treatment.

December 6, 2013 Full Review Source:

[The director's]non-judgmental, unmelodramatic, deadpan approach is beautifully gauged, somehow creating in the viewer a grudging admiration for this unsinkable, if always wrong, valiant little warrior.

In S#x Acts, male-female relationships only head in one direction, to a degree that eventually passes through being awful and starts to verge on inadvertent comedy.

In its refusal to bring an easy understanding to its main character's behavior, it comes dangerously close to presenting her as a willing perpetrator in her own victimhood.

The tyranny of popularity among high schoolers has rarely been depicted so brutally. It's a different kind of teen horror movie.

July 28, 2013 Full Review Source:

With its broad, ambiguous title, Six Acts reminds us, with heartbreaking power, that sometimes vigilance just isn't enough, and all it takes is an "act" or two to change a life forever.

The acting, direction, and editing by Arik Lahav-Leibovich are all first rate, but possibly the dispiriting hopelessness of Gili's downward plunge to complete sexual objectification is too predictable from Act One. Predictable, but sadly too believable.
