Sex on the Beach

When: Fri., July 25 2014

In the opening scene of Young & Beautiful, a French teenager (Marine Vacth) loses her virginity to a German boy who sleeps her one night after a walk on the beach. It's hard to read the girls' reaction but the film quickly flash forward to Paris where the girl has become a high-priced hooker. Even if it's not easy to know what he's trying to say with the movie, director Francois Ozon (Swimming Pool, In the House) gets a terrific performance out of newcomer Vacth). The movie makes its local premiere tonight at 7:15 at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. It shows again at 8:50 p.m. tomorrow night. Tickets are $9. (Niesel)
