[F]elt too much like a really impressive school project, film school project but not a complete feature film.

Product Description:

Deborah Kampmeier offers a unique portrait of female adolescence and a challenging exploration of the often prickly relationship between women and Christianity in her directorial debut VIRGIN. Hailing from a Baptist family steeped in the born-again traditions of their religiously conservative small town, emotionally adrift teen Jessie Reynolds (Elisabeth Moss, GIRL INTERRUPTED) seeks rebellion through drinking, smoking, and lusting after a boy named Shane (Charles Socarides). One night Jessie is raped by Shane while in a drunken stupor, and having no memory of the event, comes to believe that her "virgin" pregnancy was caused by a visit from God. But while Jessie comes to an almost rapturous acceptance of her role in the supposed immaculate conception, her family and small town turn against her with the full force of religious wrath. Robin Wright Penn turns in a strong supporting performance as Jessie's fundamentalist mother, but it's Moss who truly excels in capturing her character's deeply conflicted spirituality with a sensitivity that belies her young age.
