Very Good Girls Reviews
I'm surprised by the low ratings, but at the same time, I can see how it's not a story that would interest everyone.
It's pretty much a coming of age story about two young girls and some of the bad choices a young girl can make.
This story is about a girl who loses her virginity to her best friends crush. The only reason why I believe they made this one is because of Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen are at a reasonable age... They can act and look hot, but...
However, who gives a shit. The story sucked. It was drawn out and nothing really happened that you would give a shit about. You just want it to end... and then it does.
The girls in this movie explore what family means. I found the contrast of how each perceived their own vs how they saw each others very interesting. I had those similar feelings as a girl so I could connect on many levels. The photography angle was plus seeing as that it what I do and how I spent my youth. The boy was hot (always a plus), and I thought the girl put on a solid performance. The music was wonderful.
Both girls had to learn to handle both their mistakes and other peoples mistakes. Some people might not like the twist of this movie, but I liked it. I know that not every girls has broken girl code when it comes to boys, but I don't know any that haven't had thoughts in that regard. When your young hormones can help assist in bad decision making almost as much as alcohol. I know I have made this mistake with my best friend, thankful we were able to over come it but this movie reminded me of that crazy time of my youth.
What I like most is that everything seemed so real, it was a throw back to my youth. It wasn't over dramatized. Unrealistic things didn't happen. Everything just was. Which made it kind of beautiful. The movie hasn't gotten the best review, but I don't care. It isn't for everyone; it's really only for girls that are looking to spend a couple hours remembering what it felt like to come of age.
Two friends Elizabeth and Dakota make a pact to lose their virginity on their last summer-vacation at New York City.
Look at the theme of the film and then look at the title of the film. Shame has never been this explainable before.
