San Francisco in the 1970s. In a post-hippie environment of punk rock and cocaine, 15-year-old Minnie wants to be a comic book artist and loses her virginity, but her first lover is none other than her mother’s boyfriend.
A story about the romantic and sexual relationship between a 15-year-old and a 35-year-old man (who’s also his mother’s boyfriend), the first film adaptation of the graphic, semi-autobiographical novel by Phoebe Gloeckner –an artist influenced by the lysergic works of Robert Crumb and his wife Aline Kominsky– never succumbs to scandal or becomes a morality tale, and steers clear from all the clichés of denunciation works. Minnie, daughter of a single man, loves to party and is a bit irresponsible, has everything that’s lacking in the girls that the industry of pop idolatry mass-produces, starting with a Janis Joplin poster, an intense curiosity and the streets of San Francisco in the ‘70s as backdrop. The pages in her wild diary are shown to us with humor, honesty and an unusual combination of morbidity and tenderness. MK
