FILM GUIDE BEST SCREENPLAY- NARRATIVE AWARD

The 2011 winner is Turn me on, goddammit.

Alma is a small-town teen with a big imagination. Horny and looking for love, she has only her lively imagination and a kindly phone sex operator to ameliorate her frustratingly lonely and chaste life. But Alma's active fantasy world and even more active libido only seem to get her into trouble. After a titillating yet awkward encounter with school heartthrob Artur promises to literally make Alma's dreams come true, she is instead shunned by her catty classmates and saddled with a particularly unkind nickname. Suddenly a social outcast, Alma is desperate to just move out of town and on with her life… if only growing up were ever that simple.

Turn me on, goddammit is an offbeat coming-of-age comedy with a deadpan sense of humor, enlivened by its rich sense of fantasy and frank but sweet approach to teen sexuality. With its complicated and perfectly executed tone balancing candid sexual content with a certain earnest awkwardness, Turn me on is an apt evocation of the particular complexities of teen girlhood.
