Slut In a Good Way (2019)

Comedy, Romance 1h 29m 2019

Since its origin, the word slut has been used to diminish, discredit, and define young women, often before they could define themselves. While it still packs a pretty destructive punch, popular activism — from the Riot grrrls of the ‘90s to modern-day SlutWalks — encourages us to stand in defiance and take the word back.

If changing the language means changing the culture, SLUT IN A GOOD WAY successfully — and delightfully — wrests the power of the word from its abusers. With sparkling wit, resounding spirit, and a ton of heart, the film tells the story of 17-year-old Charlotte, a girl whose newfound sexual empowerment forces her to confront the harsh judgment of the ever-popular double standard.

Following in the footsteps of classic indie films like CLERKS and FRANCES HA, this Quebecois coming-of-age comedy gets right into the hearts and minds of teenagers with a playful mix of hilarious verisimilitude (see: drinking tall cans in a public park with your friends) and ultra-dramatic, black and white cinematography. You’ll laugh. You’ll sigh. And your heart will swell with the memory of a time when eating chips with your crush once meant the world to you, too.

“Lorain’s film challenges traditional gender roles in such a way that’s surface-level entertaining but also deep enough to inspire a college term paper or two.” — Peter Debruge, Variety
