S#x Acts

A high school girl commits various sex acts, in six acts, with her fellow students in this Israeli drama, in Hebrew with English subtitles.  And it paints a pretty dismal picture for today's young people.  The self-obsessed and spoiled boys all say and do whatever it takes to get the new girl in town to perform increasingly unwanted sex acts on them, even bordering on statutory rape.  And the girl is so determined to be accepted into the in-crowd that she's willing to be passed around and reputed to be the school slut.  It feels quite real, and God help all you parents of teenagers.

Grade: B

Who is this movie for?  It's a cautionary tale for all you neglectful parents out there.  Of course those neglectful parents aren't reading my review and monitoring what their children see and do.  And though it's well made, aside from raising awareness, this film never reaches the level to make it quite worth your time.
