What's funny, however, is I recall getting smart with my own mother about the topic of sex and various other things, and I realize looking back that some things never change. Kids may think they're old enough to do the things their parents tell them not to do, but they still don't know any more than we ever did. Excellent job by our main character Alexis Dziena as a basically good but troubled teen who is battling with dangerous social norms and Marcia Gay Harden as her mother taking the bull by the horns once an epidemic of syphilis breaks out among the students. Unlike years ago, I approved of the majority of her actions and feelings, but I'm also grateful I don't have kids in this sexually charged society. There are some very disturbing pictures of untreated syphilis when Dziena's character looks them up on the net, and the topic is troublesome in a good way.
This movie should be mandatory viewing in all high schools because, as one woman in the movie said, you can preach abstinence all you want, but sooner or later most of these kids are going to play follow the leader. Hopefully, this well-done movie will make them think before they act.
I think it proves a good point to teen age girls like Becca, Hannah, and Dawn that are living in familys that seem too perfect or family's like Dawn's who have mother's that act too young and don't put up a good example. I give this movie 5 stars and I can't wait to get the DVD on March!
Then again, the focus on syphillis is an interesting choice, especially since with the advent of HIV/AIDS, other STDs have fallen into the background on main education, and in the case of many teens, fallen to the realm of jokes. This may prevent teens from taking this movie seriously.
