Above is the trailer for Jamie Babbitt's new film, Itty Bitty Titty Committee. Watch it. This movie is amazing. It's serious and funny and, at times, truly analytical. Plus it's got a killer soundtrack. Yay, Le Tigre!

Anyway, this movie is great. It's about an 18-year-old Latina lesbian (Anna) who works at a plastic surgeon's office. She just got rejected twice, first by her school of choice and then by her girlfriend dumping her. So she meets this one girl, Sadie, who invites her to join her radical feminist group, Clits in Action. And, well, hilarity happens from there.

This movie is great because it doesn't take itself too seriously. It's got a lot of awesome feminist content, a great cast, and a good story. Also, I love the fact that the movie isn't about Anna's coming out as a lesbian as a lot of films are. She finds herself, not her lesbianism. None of the movie is focused on the fact that its main character is a lesbian. It's just treated as a "Yeah, of course, why not?" sort of thing. That was one of the coolest things about it, I thought.

Anyway, check out the trailer and this review for more info.
