In the genre of teen films, there are many examples of boys behaving badly and far fewer of where young women hold centre stage. Recent films such as Lady Bird and Booksmart have begun to address this imbalance, and Slut In A Good Way is another major step in this direction. Taking a Jane Austen-esque comedy of manners, mixing it with a healthy steal from Aristophanes’ classical comedy ‘Lysistrata’, and then firmly planting it in the 21st century world of work leads to a fresh and invigorating exposé of sexual relations in a (still) male-dominated society.

Each year, the megastore Toy Depot hires students as casual staff for the Christmas season. 17-yearolds Charlotte, Mégane and Aube all apply for part-time jobs, having been somewhat smitten by the guys who already work there. Moving on from recent heartbreak, Charlotte chooses to explore her freedom and have fun. But when her new-found sexual empowerment gives her the ‘perfect score’ in a game created by her male co-workers, she bands her female colleagues together to go on a sex strike. Will abstinence make the heart grow fonder?
