Worth Watching - March 25: French Water Lilies Trailer
Oh those French… Screw Meet Dave, watch this trailer for Water Lilies (Naissance Des Pieuvres) instead! This borders on the edge of being NSFW, but thankfully it's an MPAA approved trailer which means you can watch it. I'd love some explanation for this, but instead I think I'll just sit back and enjoy - but watch out, the girls are very young. One summer, three fifteen-year-old girls--Marie, Anne and Floriane--share secrets in the girl's locker room. Desire erupts. They will never be able to forget their first time. Those French really know how to pull off some intriguing sexual dramas, that's for sure. Interested?
If you still need a reason to get interested in this, it currently has a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes with 15 reviews. "Well observed and painfully accurate in its depiction of the agonies of growing up, this is a small triumph." From Daily Mirror.
