  1. Isn’t the teenage girl in Diary of a Teenage Girl 15, not 17? Each year younger ups the creep factor of Skarsgard’s character exponentially (as does the porn ‘stache) and the divide between the girl’s hormones and her maturity. Did the movie age up the character? The movie does look well acted, but if they upped the girl’s age they really changed the dynamic.

    1. Yeah, she’s 17 in the film — there’s even a point where she mentions how soon she’ll be 18. It does change things, I suppose, but this version of the movie could not have been made with a protagonist who’s any younger.
