Pam is 20 years-old. Her girlfriends are always found on the sofa in the Ranch, the apartment she shares with Manon. Talk, drink, smoke, dance: it’s their age, but sometimes you need to escape the group to trace your own path.
With her debut feature, Sophie Letourneur brought a refreshing breeze to French cinema by depicting the lives (and parties) of sassy young women. After a long period of rehearsals, and a tight script based on moments she had lived with her own friends, Chicks retains its vivid, strident realism.
