THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL is an upcoming drama film directed and written by newcomer Marielle Heller, based on the graphic novel The Diary of a Teenage Girl: An Account in Words and Pictures by Phoebe Gloeckner. It stars British actress Bel Powley, in a breakout role, along with Kristen Wiig, Alexander Skarsgård, Christopher Meloni, Quinn Nagle, and Austin Lyon.
Premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, the film depicts the blossoming sexuality of 15-year-old Minnie Goetze (Powley) against the backdrop of 1970s San Francisco. Minnie makes detailed logs of her life, writing, drawing, and recording confessions in her tape recorder — including ones about her budding affair with her mother’s (Wiig) freewheeling boyfriend (Skarsgård).
