“A hilarious girl’s coming of age movie that Hollywood would never make.”—Jezebel

Winner of the Best Screenplay award at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival, Turn Me On, Dammit! is a whimsical and refreshingly honest coming-of-age story about the blossoming sexuality of a teenage girl. Alma, who is 15, lives in an insufferably boring little town in the Norwegian hinterlands and is consumed by out-of-control hormones and fantasies that range from sweetly romantic images of Artur, the boyfriend she yearns for, to more down-and-dirty daydreams. Laced with warmth and quirky humor, Turn Me On, Dammit! is a light-hearted take on the kind of story that is told so often about boys and so rarely about girls. (76 mins., video)
