Synopsis by Perry Seibert
François Ozon's Young & Beautiful stars Marine Vacth as Isabelle, a 17-year-old on a summer holiday with her family when she loses her virginity. Upon returning home, she begins working as a prostitute, eventually developing something of a relationship with an older john who treats her better than many of her other clients. After an unexpected event, Isabelle's mother learns of her daughter's secret life, causing a great amount of conflict between everyone in the family, and leading to complications between Isabelle and her stepfather. Meanwhile, Isabelle's younger half-brother wrestles with puberty. Young & Beautiful screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
