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) Tribecamore

Critic Reviews for S#x Acts

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3)

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.

New York Times
Top Critic

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

NPR
Top Critic

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.

Village Voice
Top Critic

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

It's Just Movies

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

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

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

Audience Reviews for S#x Acts

We never learn a lot about Gili, other than she's recently transferred to this school and it's not due to a family move; obviously something went down at her old school, but all she'll say is that she was looking for a school with a cooler vibe. And that's just it, other than not being as wealthy as some of the kids in her new school, she is a cool girl. There's nothing odd or different about her that she couldn't fit in; yet some lack of self-esteem makes her give in to these guys with just the least amount of flattery on their part. Particularly Omari, who definitely represents that "popular guy" in every school. It doesn't even seem as though Gili covets him for a boyfriend; it's more like she thinks eventually she'll be his hook up of choice, like it will become a mutual sexual relationship, instead of him using her and asking her to pleasure his friends and brother.

Both the sad and good part of S#x Acts is that these encounters are written so realistically - there's nothing over the top or gratuitous about any of the 6 and we're left to imagine a 7th sexual favor given by Gili. What we're witnessing is a social commentary on teenage promiscuity in the age of the over the counter morning after pill... READ MORE http://www.tinseltine.com/2013/12/tribeca-film-sx-acts.html
