I was tortured by sex when I was a young woman. I went from being an awkward, skinny bookworm to a curvy 16-year-old almost overnight. I wasn't used to attracting male attention and I felt simultaneously powerful and powerless.
I'm very happy about this film, despite the rumpus which hit before the Cannes Film Festival last May, when at the last moment it was not accepted into the official competition due to endless talk of a sex-filled beginning.
When we indicate to our kids that certain things are unspeakable, or that we can't manage strong feelings, or that we would, "never get over it" if X happened, we send a scary message.

Louise strolls into Jonathan's apartment, awkward and exhausted. She's still wearing her white lab coat from work. In fact, she almost never takes it off. It's her good luck charm, her safety blanket that gets her through days of sexually stimulating rats for research.

When did bearded men start getting all the babes? We've done our own research on the history of beards in America to shed some light on this hairy situation.
