Young & Beautiful
A film by François Ozon
Starring Marine Vacth, Géraldine Pailhas, Frédéric Pierrot, Charlotte Rampling
The portrait of a 17 year-old girl, in 4 seasons and 4 songs.
Acclaimed director François Ozon (Swimming Pool, 8 Women) helms this erotic tale of sexual awakening. After losing her virginity, 17-year-old budding beauty Isabelle (Marine Vacth) takes up a secret life as a call girl, meeting her older gentlemen clients for erotic hotel room trysts. Throughout, she remains curiously aloof, showing little interest in the encounters themselves or the money she makes, while Ozon slyly refrains from offering easy answers. As the enigmatic Isabelle, Marine Vacth is magnetic, delivering a star-making breakout performance in this sleek and sexy coming-of-age drama.
Mesmerizing. A fascinating contemplation of adolescent sexuality. Psychologically probing and unerringly elegant. A luminous, star-making performance for Marine Vacth.
—David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
Francois Ozon’s YOUNG & BEAUTIFUL continues the winning streak of a director with an especially acute understanding of desire.
