theguardian.com – Being a teenager is about testing the boundaries, venturing into the darkness and seeing just how far you can go til something bad happens. Knowing that limit is part of what shapes us as adults, and I’ve never seen that process illustrated as well as in The Diary of a Teenage Girl. Considering the film is set in the counter-culture of San Francisco in the 1970s, there was ample darkness for a girl to get into.

The movie wades right in with 17-year-old Minnie (Benidorm star Bel Powley) starting a sexual relationship with her mother’s boyfriend, Monroe (Alexander Skarsgard). It carries on far longer than it should, with him egging her on as she’s pushing her away. It’s not helped by her mother (Kristen Wiig) who parties alongside her daughter and tacitly condones her pot, alcohol, and cocaine use, but is simultaneously threatened by her daughter’s blossoming sexuality. Minnie gets into all sorts of trouble all over town, but she keeps coming back to Monroe, convinced that they can somehow make their obviously inappropriate relationship work.

First time writer/director Marielle Heller, adapting the novel by Phoebe Gloekner, does a bang up job with the story, but also offers a fair bit of visual ingenuity. Minnie wants to be a cartoonist and draws constantly, her pictures embellishing the footage in spectacular and subtle ways and her comic strips becoming full-on animation. It’s less whimsical than it seems, especially when used sparingly. The rest of the film has a sort of hazy glaze over it, like old Polaroid snapshots or the best Instagram filter for any Throwback Thursday photo you post from your youth.

But it’s Minnie’s story that is captivating, made even better by a naked performance, literally and figuratively, by Powley. Is it her ill-advised (and possibly abusive) first sexual experience that forms her, is it her mother who fancies herself a feminist but competes with women for men’s attention, is it the drugs, is it her sexually-progressive friend Kimmie (Madeline Waters), is it the 70s, is it underground comics, is it San Francisco, is it just hormones? No, it’s all of those things. And this is the rare movie that realises that individuals are the sum of formative experiences some good, some bad, and some productive in their devastation.

freep.com – Seeing the film based on her novel, “The Diary of a Teenage Girl,” for the first time at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival is bound to be memorable for Phoebe Gloeckner.

The University of Michigan associate professor already has been through the stage version of her acclaimed book, a graphic novel-prose hybrid with autobiographical elements.

“When I saw the play, it was as if I was watching ghosts of my past just walking and talking and living and breathing,” she says. “The movie’s like that as well. So it’s very emotional for me. It’s a wonderful experience and very strange.”

“The Diary of a Teenage Girl” will have several screenings at Sundance. It’s competing in the U.S. drama category of the celebrated Utah event, which runs through Feb. 1.

The coming-of-age movie stars British newcomer Bel Powley as Minnie Goetze, a teen navigating the experimental haze of 1970s San Francisco without much guidance from any adults. Kristen Wiig plays Minnie’s mother, while Alexander Skarsgard (HBO’s “True Blood”) plays her mom’s boyfriend, with whom Minnie has an affair.

Gloeckner’s book came out in 2002. It stirred controversy and also drew much praise for its honest, unflinching, often painful story told from a young girl’s perspective.

“Minnie is one of the most believable teenage protagonists ever written, a complicated, contradictory child posing as a woman. Her ‘Diary’ is a page-turner of a very high order and a tour de force of emotional intensity and damage,” said the San Francisco Chronicle.

The book was named one of Rolling Stone’s 50 best non-superhero graphic novels and continues to connect with readers. One of its fans, Marielle Heller, was so moved by the subject matter that she lobbied Gloeckner for the theatrical rights and adapted it as a play that earned good reviews during a 2010 off-Broadway run.

Gloeckner admits she was leery of seeing the play and only decided to accept an invitation to an early run-through in Los Angeles at the last minute. “I was afraid it would be so horrible, it would just kill me,” she recalls. “I went to the play and I was just in tears. It was pretty amazing.”

Heller’s devotion to “Diary” has continued with the film adaptation, which she wrote and directed. It’s executive-produced by her husband, Jorma Taccone, one-third of the comedy music trio the Lonely Island (with Andy Samberg and Akiva Schaffer) and the director of “MacGruber.”

Gloeckner says she spent about eight days on the set during filming. She hasn’t seen the final cut yet. During a sound-mixing session at the Skywalker Ranch in Marin County, Calif., Heller asked Gloeckner if she was ready to watch it.

“The sound guy turned around really quickly and he said to me, ‘Look, if you have a choice whether or not to see the movie, I would wait until the premiere, because if you see it now, you’re not going to experience it with the excitement you would (there). You’re going to be looking at other people for their reaction,’ ” Gloeckner recalls.

She took his advice and plans to see it at Sundance.

Since 2004, Gloeckner has been in Ann Arbor, where she teaches at the U-M Stamps School of Art & Design. She’s currently taking the semester off to focus on her latest project, for which she received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2008.

It’s the story of a teenage girl from Mexico who was murdered and the family she left behind. Gloeckner, who’s spent years on the research, plans to do a print version as well as a multimedia electronic novel that will include animation.

For Gloeckner, one of the joys of “Diary” reaching the big screen is knowing the novel has staying power.

“I continue to get letters from people and invitations to talk about it. I’m so grateful for that. When I work on something, I work really hard. I don’t do things just to make a splash and make some money. I put everything into it.”

SPOILER ALERT: True Blood Season 7 premieres this Sunday night but it is next week’s episode that will have everyone talking. Season 7 episode 2 will reportedly feature a same-sex hookup between Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten). When we last saw Eric he was barea** naked and baking in the snow. Now it appears he will definitely be back, at least in the gay-love dreams of Jason.

Things are getting hot on True Blood. The Season 7 premiere episode is just one day away. However, fans can not wait until next week’s episode which will feature a gay sex scene between Ryan Kwanten and Alexander Skarsgard. Moviepilot.com isreporting on the hookup scene, writing:

“How about what’s sure to be the most talked-about sex scene in True Blood history? And yes, it’s crazier than that time Bill [Compton (played by Stephen Moyer)] climbed out of his grave and had sex with Sookie [Stackhouse (played by Anna Paquin)] in the graveyard. This same-sex hookup, between two non-gay characters, goes down in Episode 2 of the show’s final season–and trust me, it was worth the wait. I can’t say much more, but in case you’re wondering, this particular “love” scene is accompanied by strings.”

Knowing the way things work on the series, it is likely that the scene in question will be a dream sequence, thanks to the magical properties of vampire blood.

Are you excited about the new season of True Blood? Do you think that the show should called it quits long ago, or would you like to see it keep going even longer? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section at the bottom of the page.
