One of the more buzzed about titles from the 2015 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year was The Diary of a Teenage Girl, a provocative coming-of-age tale following a young girl exploring her sexuality in the groovy 1970s. After seeing the film, my review called the film "a wonderful portrait of a teenager girl exploring her body, trying to understand love, and just figuring out the world around her." In addition, I found the film to be "sincere, funny, passionate and easily one of the best female-centric coming-of-age dramas." Now some new photos from the film have emerged featuring breakout star Bel Powley, Kristen Wiig and Alexander Skarsgard, and hopefully we'll see the first trailer arrive soon too. Look below!
Here's the new photos from Marielle Heller's The Diary of a Teenage Girl from The Playlist:
The Diary of a Teenage Girl is written and directed by Marielle Heller, making her feature directorial debut. Lonely and artistic, Minnie (Bel Powley) chronicles her trials through expressive drawings and painfully honest missives confided to a tape recorder. One fateful evening alone with the boyfriend (Alexander Skarsgard) of her mother (Kristen Wiig), Minnie is confronted with her burgeoning sexuality for the first time, and suddenly this precocious teen is in way over her head. The film premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and Sony Pictures Classics picked it up for distribution, but there's no release date set just yet.
