Synopsis

Based on the critically acclaimed graphic novel by Phoebe Gloeckner, THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL tells the coming-of-age story of Minnie Goetze, a teenager growing up in 1970's-era San Francisco. Searching for direction in life, she chronicles her daily trials through expressive drawings and painfully honest missives confided to a tape recorder. But when an evening alone with her mother's opportunistic boyfriend becomes intimate, Minnie is confronted with her burgeoning sexuality for the first time, beginning an affair that casts her in way over her head.
