Young & Beautiful


Mesmerizing. A fascinating contemplation of adolescent sexuality. Psychologically probing and unerringly elegant. A luminous, star-making performance for Marine Vacth.

— Stephen Holden, A.V. Club

Francois Ozon’s YOUNG & BEAUTIFUL continues the winning streak of a director with an especially acute understanding of desire.

— David Rooney, The New York Times

The kind of film that’s not afraid to acknowledge that people are fundamentally mysterious. Vacth gives a remarkably assured and subtle performance.

— Mike D\\\'Angelo, The Hollywood Reporter

Acclaimed director François Ozon (Swimming Pool8 Women) helms this erotic tale of sexual awakening. After losing her virginity, 17-year-old budding beauty Isabelle (Marine Vacth) takes up a secret life as a call girl, meeting her older gentlemen clients for erotic hotel room trysts. Throughout, she remains curiously aloof, showing little interest in the encounters themselves or the money she makes, while Ozon slyly refrains from offering easy answers. As the enigmatic Isabelle, Marine Vacth is magnetic, delivering a star-making breakout performance in this sleek and sexy coming-of-age drama.
