Pretty Persuasion


Two teen queens run the show at their elite Beverley Hill high school. They remain friends, even while competing against each other for attention and boyfriends. Then an Arab girl arrives at their school, and becomes part of their clique. Trouble arrives when the girls decide to accuse their lewd English teacher of assault, which leads to a trial... and lots of dirty laundry. This film is not for the prudish, as the dialogue and actions may shock you.
