CGiii Comment

It's a made-for-TV movie that packs one hell of a punch...and, it all hinges on one jaw-dropping revelation - where sympathies switch in a moment. It's almost like witnessing a paradigm shift - from teenage delight to terrible teen!

Kevin Bacon's gay pizza-parlour-proprietor gets a little lost amid the hormones...but, he does supply a voice of reason (and some star-quality) to this directorial debut by his wife.

Kyra Sedgwick has made a wise choice by starting small...delivering a rather significant emotional wallop.

Impressive, to say the least.

The(ir) Blurb...

When a compromising video of sixteen year old Deanna Lambert hits social media, her teenage life is changed forever. Overcoming bullies, hurtful school-yard taunts and the enduring rage and disappointment of her father, Deanna longs to escape a life defined by her past. Directed by Kyra Sedgwick (feature directorial debut) and starring Ryann Shane, Jon Tenney and Kevin Bacon, based on Sara Zarr's award winning novel, Story of a Girl is a coming of age drama about a young woman pushing beyond the shadow of her past to become the author of her own life.
