Mary Jane's Not a Virgin Anymore reminded me of Clerks - a cheaply-made indie film where characters in the service industry (in this case, working at a movie theater) have conversations intercut with vignettes about how terrible the customers can be. Except female-driven and about something more than Star Wars jokes. We're thrown in the deep end with a pretty raw scene where the title character loses her virginity, leading to an exploration of her friends' first times, as she's set on the path of sexual discovery. Lisa Gerstein is convincing in the lead, though much of the cast has variable acting talent. But the film's takes on love and sex are well-observed and truthful. Director Sarah Jacobson sometimes goes into flights of stylish fancy, but they don't all work, at least not on first viewing, but the way that opening contrast is set up is as good as it gets. The hilarious end credits are worth +½ a star all by themselves.
