The Beautiful Person (2008)

Christophe Honoré directs Léa Seydoux, Louis Garrel and Grégoire Leprince-Ringuet in this French teen drama where the arrival of a sexy orphan disrupts the various affairs and romances in a posh Paris secondary school.

Based on an 17th century novel but Clueless it ain’t. Everyone be fucking everyone yet this yields minimal nudity and no home life scenes. These characters live their drab little existences in the school courtyard or on street corners. It is winter, get into a bedroom, any bedroom, and enjoy your youth! Boring.
