PRETTY PERSUASION (2005): High School Revenge, Teen Anal Sex, & Lipstick Lesbians

The tagline for Pretty Persuasion (2005) is "Revenge knows no mercy" and 15-year-old Roxbury high school sophomore, Kimberly Joyce (Evan Rachel Wood), shows no mercy in getting revenge on Brittany, her best friend, for stealing Kimberly's boyfriend.  Simultaneously, Kimberly "sleeps" her way to the top of her young acting career. 

In the teen film:

1. Kimberly received oral from her teen boyfriend

2. Strategically, Kimberly performed oral sex on the son of a powerful Jewish lawyer

3. Kimberly read an erotic letter to Percy Anderson - the drama teacher. In the letter titled, "Why I Deserve to be Punished", Kimberly confessed that she had been naughty, mischievous, and nasty. And that she deserved to be "punished" for talking in class. "I will gladly accept any punishment," Kimberly offered her drama teacher. Subsequently, after Mr. Anderson humbled Brittany during drama, Kimberly and Brittany falsely accused Mr. Anderson of sexual harassment.

4. Kimberly blackmailed Emily Klein (Jane Krakowski), a television reporter who was covering Mr. Anderson's sexual harassment trail, by making a sex tape of Klein "munching [Kimberly's] underage rug".


5. And Kimberly revealed during a sleepover with two other nymphets, while smoking her father's cigars and watching his porn, that she had anal sex when she was 14-years-old after Warren Prescott asked shyly, "I was wondering if you might let me pack your fudge chute." 

Here's Wikipedia's plot summary "Pretty Persuasion: 
A 2005 American black comedy/satirical film about a 15-year-old schoolgirl who makes an allegation of sexual harassment against her drama teacher [Mr. Anderson]
And here's IMDb's plot summary: 
A 15-year-old girl incites chaos among her friends and a media frenzy when she accuses her drama teacher of sexual harassment
However, these plot summaries incorrectly imply that the main plot of film is the false accusation of sexual harassment against the drama teacher, but that was all part of Kimberly's plan to get revenge on Brittany and get a role on a popular television show. 

And high school teachers may heed the advice that Mr. Anderson's colleague shared with him about high school nymphets that, "[...] high school is cock teasing 101 [...]"

Despite its salacious teen content, Pretty Persuasion was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival, but won the German Independence Award/Audience Award at the 2005 Oldenburg International Film Festival.
