Sex Star

A 29-year-old assistant editor and aspiring writer, Alice Harvey is funny, smart and emotionally self-destructive. Climbing the ranks at a notable publishing company, she struggles to write her own story, forever stymied by memories of her youthful relationship with her dad’s older best friend, Milan. After 15 years, Milan and Alice\'s paths cross once again, forcing them to confront events that have long gone unaddressed.


 
 

 

Women, not just men, have read the great classics
 of literature that are written by male literary giants,
 and are still reading them to this day. Most of these
 female readers would probably have, at some point,
 experienced the inner conflict between the female
 characters that appear in these classical literatures
 as male fantasy and women as they are in reality,
 including the reader herself. Looking at the depictions
 of women in literature, the female readers must have
 pondered – is this me? Are there women like these
 characters around me? Must we live this way? I want
 to know more about the female protagonist\'s thoughts,
 not her image or physical appearance, and so on.
 In The Girl in the Book, Alice has wanted to be a writer
 ever since she was a teenager. Thanks to having a
 father who is the president of a publishing company,
 she gets the opportunity to ask a writer, who authored
 several books that Alice enjoyed reading, to be her
 mentor. Thus begins the relationship between a
 teenage aspiring writer and a bestselling author who is
 in 40\'s. Now, at age 29, Alice still wants to be a writer,
 but whenever she starts writing, she experiences a
 flashback to her past relationship with her mentor
 and cannot write a single line. But the girl in the book
 overcomes her sexual trauma, as well as the selfdestruction
 and emotional instability that came with the
 trauma, meets a new man that she grows to love, and
 becomes the writer that writes her own stories at last.
 The debut feature film by Marya COHN, The Girl in the
 Book keenly captures the process of a woman, once
 placed within a man\'s fantasy, who shatters that male
 fantasy to advance and establish herself in her own
 literary world, and to grow from the girl in the book to a
 woman who writes a book. [Sunah KIM].
