About FILM: The Diary of a Teenage Girl (2015) (Edinburgh International Film Festival Award Winner)

Dir: Marielle Heller
15, US, Comedy Drama, 102mins

With the latest edition of the EIFF up-and-running we thought it would be a good idea to remind you of a quality film from the festival’s recent past.

This 2015 US film walked away with the International Prize at the 69th EIFF and it is a wonderful adaptation of Phoebe Gloeckner’s novel-cum-memoir of growing up in a sexually liberated 1970s San Francisco. Featuring a brilliant central performance from British actress Bel Powley as Minnie Goetze, it brings our season full circle, as it is another film in which mother (a nearly unrecognisable Kristen Wiig) and daughter relationships feature front and centre. Director Heller has since gone on to further critical acclaim with last year’s award winning Can You Ever Forgive Me? Features strong language and sexual content.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for FILM: The Diary of a Teenage Girl (2015) (Edinburgh International Film Festival Award Winner) are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
