Young & Wild (Joven y alocada) by Marialy Rivas, 2012 (NR)
with Alicia Rodriguez, Aline Kuppenheim, María Gracia Omegna, Felipe Pinto, Alejandro Goic, Ingrid Isensee, Luis Gnecco
Though her devout family believes her to be pious and dutiful, 17-year-old Daniela secretly runs a sex confession site for teens with desires like hers. In spite of priests and parents hovering, her sexuality finds a way to blossom in cyberspace.
I am sure this story deserves to be told for the next generation to understand where we come from in terms of internet and blogging. This is also the perfect depiction of a 17-year old teenager of 2010, with the lack of interest for anything but herself, growing up to the world, and the conflict between virtual and real world, when both collide. I found it already a little bit aged, which might worsen with time, some soon enough, it might become a vintage film. For now, it was a little painful to watch.
