Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Phoebe Gloeckner, THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL recounts the coming-of-age adventures of Minnie Goetze, a San Francisco teenager growing up in the counterculture haze of the 70’s. Lonely and artistic, Minnie chronicles her trials through expressive drawings and painfully honest missives confided to a tape recorder. One fateful evening alone with her mother’s boyfriend, Minnie is confronted with her burgeoning sexuality for the first time, and suddenly this precocious teen is in way over her head.
In an astonishing feature debut, writer/director Marielle Heller renders a hybrid of live-action and animation, offering a subtle, detailed window into the psyche of a bright, young woman. Brimming with wit and intelligence, and spurred by exquisite performances from Alexander Skarsgård, Kristen Wiig, and a star-making turn by Bel Powley as Minnie, THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL captures the anxiety, passion, and wonder of adolescence.
