The more you consider the theological undertones of Virgin, the more radical it becomes.

As a religious-themed movie, Virgin is as unconventional as they come.

So much of Virgin is bunk masquerading as sexual politics.

A pretentious, unpalatable stew that serves up thematic elements touching on religion, feminism, psychosis, mysticism and guilt without stirring up any believable characters, engaging story, or emotional moments that might engage audiences.

Kampmeier reveals her inexperience as a feature filmmaker, and her effort struggles with the weight of its own subject matter and final ambiguities.

Ugly digital photography, banal story.

Virgin charts the spiritual transformation of a rebellious teenager as she opens to her divine center, her nurturing abilities and her empathy for others.
