It Felt Like Love (Eliza Hittman, 2013) 5/5
I was quite surprised at how much I loved this because the previous films that I’ve seen about teenage female sexuality (mostly French ones)… I mean they’re good films but I wasn’t really into any of them all that much. I found it hard to relate or connect with the characters. This one worked for me. Big time. It’s unsettling, painful, and heartbreaking. Definitely the most moving film I’ve seen about this kind of subject. Major props to the lead actress, Gina Piersanti. I can see how easily the character could’ve been misunderstood or perceived as unsympathetic but she was great. She was able to say so much with so little. A beautiful film about the pains and horrors of being a teenage girl.
