Here’s another girl-in-pubescent-rapture flick you won’t see Hollywood making. Unlike that Serbian movie with the 14-year-olds sexing on realistic genital prosthetics, this new Norwegian film Turn Me On, Dammit! looks lighter on the shock value, heavier on realism — or, what it’s really like to be a 15-year-old girl stuck in a shitty small town, masturbating joyfully, writing to a Texas death row inmate and spending all your money on phone sex and dirty magazines.
That newest trailer above is a mood piece made for the subtitle allergic, presumably, but it’s lovely. If you need more context, the festival trailer is below. It’s a bit Scarlet Letter-y and it all starts with a penis poke. No, I’m not trying to make a joke. Alma gets awkwardly poked with a penis, and no one believes her. Jerks.
Limited US release starts March 30. Stupid US remake anxiety begins today.
