Scrappy, raw, and quaintly unpretentious, <i>Mary Jane’s Not a Virgin Anymore</i> surveys the punk universe of a small midwestern town with none of the usual shock-value affectations. Made for a song, it proves itself the persistent train that could. Suburban Jane, the archetypical schoolgirl nerd, desperately wants to be as hip and worldly as her older movie theater coworkers. But without a body manipulation, dreaded lock, or sexual conquest to her name, she is perpetually dismissed as plain little Mary Jane by the cooler-than-thou. When Jane is unceremoniously deflowered and promptly discarded by the town’s most infamous asshole, the motley group of workers rallies to her side. Jane arises with a new sense of self and firm grasp on her sexuality. With a hot indie score and disarming performance by Lisa Gerstein, writer/director/producer/editor and cinematographer Sarah Jacobson’s sassy debut is a sheer delight.
