Movie Review: Easy A

This was a movie I was excited to check out, and I was not disappointed!  Emma Stone stars as Olive Penderghast, a high school girl who has the attention of her teachers but not her peers, until a rumour about her loosing her virginity gets out. Then in order to keep her new "popularity" if you can call it that begins to aid fellow students with problems at a further expense to her popularity and reputation.

This comedy is smart, and witty and and features Amanda Bynes as an extreme Christian and Lisa Kudrow as a school Guidance Counsellor. This film is a modern take on Nathaniel Hawthorn's The Scarlet Letter both with strong female characters whose reputations are ruined by sex, and they must overcome their struggles and re-find themselves. This was a teen comedy that was actually funny and had me laughing out loud! Emma Stone really creates a believable and relate-able character in this film and I don't think the movie would have been the same without her.
I highly recommend this movie!!
