The Oscars aren’t the only awards being handed out in February. Next month, the Indie Spirit Awards will honor the best in independent cinema from the past year, and “The Diary Of A Teenage Girl” will contend in three major categories: Best First Feature, Best First Screenplay, and Best Female Lead. Today we have a prize pack featuring the film on Blu-ray, plus the book by Phoebe Gloeckner it’s based on, for some lucky readers.
Directed by Marielle Heller, and starring Bel Powley, Kristen Wiig, and Alexander Skarsgard, the story is set in 1976 San Francisco where Minnie Goetze is growing up at the crossroads of the fading hippie movement and the dawn of punk rock. Like most teenage girls, Minnie longs for love, acceptance, and a sense of purpose in the world. She begins a complex love affair with her mother’s boyfriend, “the handsomest man in the world,” Monroe Rutherford. What follows is a sharp, funny, and provocative account of one girl’s sexual and artistic awakening, without judgment.
