Last year, the festival circuit offered two French films that pushed the sexual envelope. Of course, there was Gaspar Noé‘s “Love,” which earned the most attention thanks to its unsimulated sex scenes presented in 3D, and then there was Eva Husson‘s debut feature “Bang Gang: A Modern Love Story” which pretty much says everything you need to know in the title. And now it’s getting ready to heat up stateside cinemas.
Starring Finnegan Oldfield, Marilyn Lima, Daisy Broom, Lorenzo Lefebvre, and Fred Hotier, the story follows a group of teenage friends who test and expand their sexual boundaries, going to some shocking places. Here’s the official synopsis:
George, a pretty teen girl, falls in love with Alex. To get his attention, she initiates a game with their friends, discovering, testing and pushing the limits of their sexuality. When the nature of their activities is revealed, each of them deals with the scandal in radically different ways. Faced with the implosion of their value systems, they move on by reassessing their priorities, finding love and their real desires.
“Bang Gang: A Modern Love Story” opens on June 17th.
