Alex Makes Me Feel Like A Teenage Girl

The New Directors New Films festival, which is an annual co-presentation between the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Museum of Modern Art here in New York and showcases... new films from new(ish) filmmakers, kicks off tonight with the much-lauded-in-Sundance The Diary of a Teenage Girl, starring Alexander Skarsgard and Kristen Wiig and newcomer Bel Powley as the titular teenage girl. It's based on a book by graphic novelist Phoebe Gloeckner, which I've been meaning to read for so long that it's shameful - guess I'm seeing the movie first!

One of my best friends who was at Sundance couldn't stop raving about the film, and thought particularly it'd be up my alley, so I'm pretty excited for this one. Actually looking at the cast list I am reminded that besides the already awesome folks I named above the movie also co-stars Christopher Meloni and Margarita "Lisa P" Levieva! Gimme gimme gimme.
