Slut In A Good Way - School Screening

CHARLOTTE A DU FUN

In the genre of teenager films, there are many examples of boys behaving badly and far fewer 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 Toy Depot hires students as casual staff for the Christmas season. 17 year olds Charlotte, Mégane, and Aube all apply for part-time jobs, somewhat smitten by the guys who already work at the megastore. Moving on from recent heartbreak, Charlotte chooses to fully explore her freedom, and she has 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?

Our Young Ambassadors said:
“Hilarious … a funny and creative telling of exploring your sexuality … charming characters that teens can resonate with … entertaining … good examples of healthy and unhealthy relationships …  appropriately funny and serious … heartwarming … an interesting choice to be in black and white and have that old style glitter … a great soundtrack … the end credits deserved five stars”
