THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL tells the story of Minnie, a 15-year-old aspiring comic book artist and daughter of a young single mother. Minnie lusts over her mother’s boyfriend, Monroe. After a night out, Minnie seduces and is seduced by Monroe, which results in an intense affair. She obsessively begins to voice record these events in her diary. Throughout this affair and other affairs, Minnie is desperately seeking for love, especially from Monroe, but she clearly confuses love with sex.

THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL promotes a feminist worldview. The feminist worldview is observed at the end of the movie when Minnie is liberated by what the movie sees as the oppression of “male dominance.” This is expressed in the phrase “I don’t need men,” which creates the idea of Minnie being empowered by her sexuality and ego. Overall, THE DIARY OF TEENAGE GIRL is shocking comedy-drama, with high artistic, entertainment value, with an abhorrent feminist worldview. DIARY also contains explicit and graphic sexual content, foul language, and drug and alcohol abuse. Ultimately, it’s an evil movie that’s unacceptable viewing.

More Detail:

THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL, set in 1970s San Francisco, tells the story of a teenage artist who enters into a sexual affair with her mother’s boyfriend. DIARY is an explicit, abhorrent movie with a very strong Romantic, feminist worldview that’s vile.

THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL tells the story of Minnie Goetze, a 15-year-old aspiring comic book artist, and the daughter of a young single mother, Charlotte Worthington. Minnie lusts over her mother’s boyfriend, Monroe Rutherford. After a night out, Minnie seduces and is seduced by Monroe, which eventually results in an intense sexual affair. She obsessively begins to voice record as a diary her sexual affairs. Throughout this affair and other affairs with men, Minnie is desperately seeking for love, especially from Monroe, but she clearly confuses love with sex.

Sadly, Monroe doesn’t reciprocate the exact same sentiments to Minnie, but rather treats her a sexual object for his own pleasure. Minnie then tries to merit his love. She also begins experimenting and consuming alcohol and psychedelic drugs.

Eventually, her mother discovers her diary recordings and finds out about the affair. Minnie runs away for several days, days that consist of sexual and hardcore drug experimentation. Minnie eventually returns home to a concerned mother and sister. The movie concludes with reconciliation between mother and daughter, and a feminist liberation moment that consists of Minnie proclaiming, “I don’t need men!”

THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL, sadly, promotes a feminist worldview. The feminist worldview is mainly observed at the end of the movie when Minnie finally breaks free from a romanticized view of love and sex, and is liberated by what the movie sees as the oppression of “male dominance.” This is expressed in the phrase “I don’t need men,” which creates the idea of Minnie being empowered by her sexuality and ego at the very end.

Overall, THE DIARY OF TEENAGE GIRL is shocking comedy-drama, with high artistic, entertainment value, with an abhorrent feminist worldview. DIARY also contains explicit and graphic sexual content, foul language, and drug and alcohol abuse. Ultimately, it’s an evil movie that’s unacceptable viewing.
