I Fake Rocked your World

Easy A is an easy winner. It’s also one of Emma Stone’s best performances. Easy A is a loose adaptation of The Scarlet Letter. Which I’ve never read or seen, but I don’t think it really matters. I got the basic gist of the story. It was about a woman forced to wear a scarlet letter “A” because of adultery. The movie Easy A sets things in high school instead of 1638 Boston. It’s about a girl named Olive Penderghast who lies about losing her virginity in order to make herself seem more interesting to her friend. Until the whole school finds out and she embraces the attention by mimicking the scarlet letter. Being a christian, I’m usually bothered by ultra religious antagonists, but the movie handles it well and keeps things light. I’d also like to add that this is Amanda Bynes last movie, which is a plus for me. Easy A is funny, charming, and filled with great moments. Namely the “Pocketful of Sunshine” sequence. Where Olive spends an entire weekend singing the song. Easy A is one of the best teen movies of the 2010’s.
