Easy A

Attended preview of Easy A, another US teen movie. Its a reasonable take on high school life, Emma Stone is an intelligent choice for the lead. The plot is somewhat predicable - After a little white lie about losing her virginity gets out, a clean cut high school girl sees her life paralleling Hester Prynne's in "The Scarlet Letter," which she is currently studying in school - until she decides to use the rumor mill to advance her social and financial standing.

The direction is good and the usual set of predictable high school 'characters' is extended by the virginal christian evangelist girl and her aging, thicko STD infected Beau!

Very good writing makes you chuckle - wait for DVD.
