Seventeen-year-old Judith Godrèche stars as teenager Beth, who dreams of getting out of her not-so-great living situation. With a bedridden mother and younger brother, she struggles to hold her family together. In the middle of a petty argument, her boyfriend dares her to bed the ugliest men she can find and sets her on the path of… disenchantment.

In French with English subtitles

A film by Benoît Jacquot

Contains echoes of everything from Bazin to Truffaut… Godrèche has mastered the fine art of ennui.”

Marc Savlov, The Austin Chronicle

As thoroughly French as Camembert.”
