easy A (2010)

A teen comedy too sharP to resist.

Regan Humphrey

Olive Penderghast (Emma Stone) throws herself into a fictitious world of debauchery, after the much-embellished story of a boring weekend leads to rambunctious rumors about her “sexual promiscuity.” Olive goes along with her fabricated reputation—first as a joke, and later to help those who might benefit from her sensationalism—but soon realizes that being her real self is more important than malevolent truth or benevolent lies.
