Harsh Rating Keeps Teenage Girls From Seeing Diary of a Teenage Girl



twitter

- the Sundance hit got a “18 certificate” rating in the UK

- Producer: “The film explores female sexuality with boldness and honesty in an unexploitative manner. In an age where young women are still continually being sexualised and objectified we feel The Diary of a Teenage Girl sends a very positive, reassuring message to young girls about female sexuality and body image.
It is a shame that audience will not be able legally see a film that was made by women for women of all ages.”

- BBFC: “The Diary of a Teenage Girl has been classified 18 for ‘strong sex’. The sex scenes and references are too numerous and sustained for a 15 classification to have been defensible. It is not true that the film has been seen only by men at the BBFC.”

- the plot: A teen artist (15) living in 1970s San Francisco enters into an affair with her mother's boyfriend. (ehhh)
