Dir: Marielle Heller | USA | 2015 | 102 mins
Cast: Bel Powley, Kristen Wiig, Alexander Skarsgård

Bel Powley, Kristen Wiig and Alexander Skarsgård star in Marielle Heller’s adaptation of Phoebe Gloeckner’s graphic novel, charting the coming-of-age adventures of Minnie Goetze, growing up fast in the counterculture haze of 1970’s San Francisco. British actress Bel Powley (A Royal Night Out) gives a dynamite performance as this inquisitive teen with bags of brains and a burgeoning sex drive, who sets her sights on her hippie mother’s (Kristen Wiig) boyfriend Monroe, played sensitively by Alexander Skarsgård. Heller’s smart direction employs a satisfying 70s palette of burgeoning feminism, bad acid trips and plenty of brown corduroy.

“Captivating […] the rare movie that realises that individuals are in the sum of formative experiences” **** Brian Moylan, Guardian
