Welcome to episode 41! Eleanor and Jenny from Story Etc return for The Diary of a Teenage Girl, Eleanor’s choice. A 2015 coming-of-age comedy-drama set in the late 70s San Francisco starring Kirsten Wiig and Bel Powley in a breakout role. It follows Minnie’s sexual awakening and creative growth as an artist. Surprisingly explicit it tackles inappropriate relationships in a refreshing, non-judgemental and unapologetic way and features great performances by all the leads. Don’t be fooled by its cover, there is humour but it’s not a quirky indie comedy, in a reversal of the manic pixie dream girl Minnie isn’t defined by saving a lost middle-aged man and she is in control of the sexual situations.
