Best known as screenwriter of twisted passion plays, including Impromptu and 9 1/2 Weeks, writer-director Kernochan delivers a punchy, warm surprise in this delightful coming-of-age comedy set in the early '60s. Desperate to end her virginity, the spirited Hoffman is sent by her frantic parents to an exclusive New England girls-only prep school run by Redgrave.
After a few comic get-acquainted hurdles with fellow classmates, our cast of fractious anti-heroines knuckles down to hard schoolwork and some deliciously wily practical jokes, which turn serious when they find out their beloved institution is about to go co-ed. Funny, sharp and entertaining, the enormously appealing cast of underage beauties is definitely in the strike zone.
