DVD: Easy A

Easy A

A high-school drama with its roots in the same films of the 1980s, and consciously tipping its hat there. It’s a film ostensibly about the high rate of sex among teenagers that nonetheless is fairly puritanical in what the characters are getting up to (everyone talks about things, but it appears to be all talk).

As you’d expect, it’s laden with innuendo, but at its heart there seem to be some positive messages about family (and a lot of negative messages about Christian hypocrisy). It owes a lot to Juno for its sense of humour. As a snapshot of what our culture believes about morality in a post-Christian society, this is worth a look.
