A scene from a movie titled “The Diary of a Teenaged Girl” was filmed in Glen Park on Feb. 12, 2014.
The film is about a teenaged artist living in 1970s San Francisco enters into an affair with her mother’s boyfriend.
Publishers Weekly describe it this way:
Gloeckner’s latest, a combination of comics and prose, follows the sexual misadventures and coming-of-age of Minnie Goetze, a troubled teenager very much reminiscent of Gloeckner, as she stumbles toward adulthood in 1970s San Francisco. Minnie’s diary details the loss of her virginity to Monroe, her mother’s less than devoted boyfriend. She falls in love with him, though he continues to sleep with Minnie’s self-absorbed, drunken mother. A hellish adolescence follows: Minnie’s kicked out of various schools, has promiscuous sex and ends up on the streets, strung out and obsessed with a young lesbian who pimps her out for more drugs.
The director and writer is Marielle Heller. The movie stars Kristen Wiig, Alexander Skarsgård and Christopher Meloni.
