trailer break: ‘Easy A’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

Oh, gosh, it’s The Scarlet Letter done up Clueless style! Awesome!

And ya gotta love that the slut-shaming of poor adorable Emma Stone comes about as a result of her trying to help a male friend from getting gay-bashed (though I don’t think the best way to accomplish that is merely to convince the bashers that a dude’s just not gay, and hence not worthy of a bashing). It is a ugly-beautiful encapsulation of all the seriously fucked-up shit with regards to sex in our culture.

At least it appears the film is sending up all that, instead of embracing it. I can hope, anyway.

Easy A opens in the U.S. and Canada on September 17, and in the U.K. on October 29.
