Paul and Erin review two sympathetic comic portraits of horny teenaged girls. First: THE TO DO LIST, writer/director Maggie Carey's comedy starring Aubrey Plaza as a girl who sets out to cram a lifetime of sexual experiences into the summer before she heads off to college; then, TURN ME ON, GODDAMMIT!, writer/director Jannicke Systad Jacobsen's 2011 Norwegian comedy/drama about a fifteen-year-old girl whose forthright attitude towards sex makes her an outcast among her classmates, and in her own house. Boise, Idaho or Skoddeheimen, Norway: which will prevail?
Plus: quick takes on FRUITVALE STATION, ELYSIUM, ONLY GOD FORGIVES, and the 2013 remake of THE EVIL DEAD.
