Af­ter a lit­tle white lie about los­ing her vir­gin­ity gets out, clean- cut high school girl Olive ( Emma Stone, pic­tured) sees her life par­al­lel­ing the fallen Hester Prynne’s in the 19th- cen­tury novel The Scar­let Let­ter – un­til she de­cides to use the ru­mour mill to ad­vance her so­cial and fi­nan­cial stand­ing. Main­tain­ing her chastity, Olive rakes in gifts and money for “pre­tend­ing” to have sex with var­i­ous nerds at school, who are also keen to im­prove their rep­u­ta­tions. Stone is fan­tas­tic in the lead role and com­edy gems are pro­vided by Stan­ley Tucci and Pa­tri­cia Clark­son as Olive’s quirky par­ents. For­mer teen favourite Amanda Bynes also stars as a re­li­gious nut.
