Even though this film seems to technically be about a teen sex pact, I really don’t think you can call it a “romp.” It’s more of a thinkpiece. In fact, it seems as though there’s very little fun about it, as Elizabeth Olsen seems to be channeling her morose Martha Marcy May Marlene character, and Dakota Fanning seems to be channeling that same character as well.
The trailer for Very Good Girls seems to be soundtracked by something of a female Elliott Smith, and there’s lots of running, crying and straight faces.
It could still very well be a great film, but if you’re looking for a female version of American Pie (and isn’t that all we’re really looking for in this life?), then keep browsing, Buster.
