SLUT IN A GOOD WAY

Comedy, Drama, Female Director(s), Female Screenwriter(s)
Charlotte couldn’t be happier about her relationship with her handsome boyfriend. But during a moment of intimacy, the teen’s beau drops a bomb on her: He’s gay. She is crushed. So, along with her best friends—the sassy spitfire Megan and the quieter Aube—Charlotte seeks distraction at a toy store. There, the three girls are charmed by the young, male employees and quickly land jobs alongside them. Charlotte, still heartbroken, starts flirting—and having casual sex—with a few of her new coworkers. Initially, she loves her new freedom. Others around her, however, feel differently, leading them to smear Charlotte’s name and challenge her newfound sexual empowerment.

With the vibrant and hilarious Slut in a Good Way, filmmaker Sophie Lorain, a veteran actress in her native Quebec, reframes the raunchy teen-comedy formula with an honest, adolescent woman’s point-of-view. The edgy comedy and finely drawn characters, both courtesy of Catherine Léger’s razor-sharp script, allow Lorain to masterfully explore the complexities of young love and the double standards placed on women of all ages. As provocative as its title suggests, Slut in a Good Way pulls no punches.
