Review

Aka ‘Jeune & Jolie’ in it’s native France is a dark coming of age tale about a year in the life of a 17 year old girl exploring her blossoming sexuality and taking it beyond the norm.

This won’t be everyone’s cup of tea but it’s incredibly well made and Marine Vacth is a name that we’ll be hearing a lot more of in the years to come. She’s gonna be big.
