“It feels so good to imagine that he might be thinking about me,” Minnie Goetz (Bel Powley) thinks to herself as she stares at a beer-guzzling Monroe (Alexander Skarsgård) in ETonline’s exclusive The Diary of a Teenage Girl clip.
The upcoming indie flick chronicles the loss of 15-year-old Minnie’s virginity to Monroe, her mom Charlotte’s (Kristen Wiig) 30-something boyfriend.
As evidenced in this sneak peek, Minnie is a slightly conflicted teenage girl longing for attention – and eager to get it from Monroe.
When a tipsy Monroe begs Charlotte to hit the town with him “just for a couple” of drinks, she turns him down, saying she’s too tired. Instead, she volunteers her wide-eyed teenage daughter to accompany him in her place before planting a smooch on her man.
The Diary of a Teenage Girl, based on the popular graphic novel “The Diary of a Teenage Girl: An Account in Words” is slated for release on Aug. 7.
