Diary of a Teenage Girl, The (18)

Diary of a Teenage Girl, The (18)


A teen artist living in 1970s San Francisco enters into an affair with her mother's boyfriend.

The critical consensus

Minnie’s inner life, a fantasia of animations appearing Crumb-like around her, is dazzling, and there’s plenty of naked emotion amid the sex, drugs and hand-drawn penises.

****(*)Phil de Semlyen, Empire Online, 03/08/2015

Often close to the bone, this exceptional film pulls off something seldom seen in cinema: a document of nascent female sexuality.

*****Leslie Felperin, The Guardian, 06/08/2015

This brilliant, provocative, achingly honest and intimate comedy-drama.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 08/08/2015

Like a distaff US version of Adrian Mole with more sex.

****(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 07/08/2015

British up-and-comer Bel Powley is outstanding as a girl who comes of age in mid-70s San Francisco in Marielle Heller’s striking debut.

****(*)Jonathan Romney, The Observer, 09/08/2015

Powley is a marvel and well-supported by the ace cast in a small film that deals with big issues about coming of age.

****(*)Brigitt Grant, Sunday Express, 09/08/2015
