Is there a reason all coming of age movies are set during summer? The latest in the genre, Very Good Girls, stars Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen as two young women dealing with the usual teenage roadblocks: out of touch parents, dreamy crushes, creepy Peter Sargaard, and the everpresent issue of heading off to college as virgins. During their one last summer together before the rest of their lives, the two make a pact to lose the V-card that's been burning a hole in their pockets, but both girls start making googly eyes at the same guy. This is like the inverse of the countless raunchy high school comedies where young men want to lose their virginity before going off to college like their loins are timed explosives. In any case, Very Good Girls looks like a poignant indie drama.
Both Olsen and Fanning come from two very different acting families, and both families have weathered career ups and downs over the years. We've decided to compare the two sets of sisters to see who comes out on top.
