Charlotte is devastated when her boyfriend, Sam, breaks the news that he’s gay—and then breaks up with her. To ease her wounded heart, the spirited 17-year-old and her two friends, outspoken radical, Mégane, and reserved bookworm, Aube, get jobs at a toy store, where they’re surrounded by an abundance of cute, slightly older boys. Emboldened by the environment and her new-found single status, Charlotte hooks up with many of her co-workers. Unfortunately, what she perceives as sexual freedom is viewed far more negatively by everyone else. It’s at this point that SLUT IN A GOOD WAY morphs from a lighthearted teen drama into a movie pairing humor with insightful social commentary about relationships, abstinence, and gender differences. By the end, Charlotte’s slightly self-absorbed façade has crumbled into something resembling humility, as she realizes love and romance isn’t an either/or proposition. Gorgeously shot in black-and-white, SLUT IN A GOOD WAY is a smart and sassy movie overflowing with heart. (In French with subtitles) —A.Z.
