Watch The Trailer For Phoebe Gloeckner’s Comic Book Memoir Adaptation


Diary of a Teenage Girl is a coming of age graphic novel written and illustrated by Phoebe Gloeckner. It was adapted for the stage by Marielle Heller a few years ago but it now seems it’s been made into a film. Ladies Making Comics writes, “The story revolves around 15-year-old Minnie Goetze, who lives in San Francisco in the 1970s, emerging from a neglectful homelife into an out-of-control haze of adolescent confusion and self-discovery, involving sex, drugs, street life, and suicidal feelings.” It’s an interesting trailer which actually includes some comic animations. As far as when we can expect to see it, the Vimeo page only has this detail, “It is supported by the Sundance Institute writers and directors labs, and is slated to go into production in the fall of 2013.” [Warning: A brief shot of nudity in a magazine appears in the trailer as well as a possibly triggery sex scene.]

    I would also add that the “sex scenes” look to be something more sinister; ie sexual assault at the least. I base this on her looking scared as said partner climbs on top of her. Even if that isn’t what’s going on, that’s still a trigger.
    That aside, this looks really good and I can’t wait to see it :)

    Well, if the resulting movie turns out half as well as the trailer, I’m in!
