Bel Powley in The Diary of a Teenage girl

In 1976 San Francisco, Minnie Goetze (Bel Powley) is growing up at the crossroads of the fading hippie movement and the dawn of punk rock. Like most teenage girls, Minnie is longing for love, acceptance and a sense of purpose in the world. Minnie begins a complex love affair with her mother’s (Kristen Wiig, Nasty Baby) boyfriend, “the handsomest man in the world,” Monroe Rutherford (Alexander Skarsgård, TV’s True Blood).

The movie was a favorite at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival (nominated for the Grand Jury Prize and winning for Cinematography), MOMA/Film Society of Lincoln Center (Opening Night), and the Los Angeles Film Festival. It garnered a 95% Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and was a New York Times Critic’s Pick as well as a People Magazine pick.

•      Deleted Scenes
•      Marielle’s Journey: Bringing The Diary To Life – A Making-of Featurette
