Easy A / The Scarlet Letter
The Youth Advisory Board Presents...
Easy A & The Scarlet Letter
After a little white lie about losing her virginity gets out, a clean cut high school girl sees her life paralleling Hester Prynne's in "The Scarlet Letter," which she is currently studying in school - until she decides to use the rumor mill to advance her social and financial standing.
High school student Olive Penderghast (Emma Stone) finds herself the victim of her school's "rumor mill" when she lies to her best friend Rhiannon (Alyson Michalka) about a weekend tryst with a fictional college freshman. Word quickly spreads of Olive's promiscuity and, much to her surprise, she welcomes the attention. When she agrees to help out a bullied friend by pretending to sleep with him, her image rapidly degrades to a more lascivious state and her world begins to spin out of control. As she helps more and more of her classmates and her lies continue to escalate, Olive must find a way to save face before the school's religious fanatic Marianne (Amanda Bynes) gets her expelled and she loses a shot at attaining her own happiness.
This program is being presented in special partnership with the Cinema Arts Centre's Anything But Silent Series, which will screen The Scarlet Letter, with live musical accompaniment on April 23rd at 7:30pm. If you haven't seen a silent film screened live, this is a great opportunity to give it a shot, because we have a special price if you come to both films - $12 for members and students, $20 for the public.
The Youth Advisory Board is the Cinema's new group of volunteers aged 16-22 with a mission to make the Cinema Arts Centre more visible to Long Island's young population. The group votes on which film to present every quarter, and they raise hundreds of dollars to bring the screening to fruition.
