Based on the novel The Metal Girl
by Judy Sandra.

Feature Film
Genre: Coming-of-Age, Comedy, Drama
Status: In Development


LOGLINE:  In the winter of 1974, a 25-year-old American woman travels to Denmark to become a "woman-of-the-world" and finds a little more adventure than she bargained for. 

DESCRIPTION:  In the winter of 1974, a 25-year-old American woman named Charlotte travels to Denmark on a solitary quest to become, in her mind, a “woman-of-the-world.” On her travels across Copenhagen to seek “life experiences”, Charlotte becomes involved with an ensemble of memorable and somewhat eccentric Scandinavians. Her journey through these relationships climaxes late one night when she finds a little more adventure than she bargained for and discovers the illuminating truth about herself.

"Metal Girl" is an exploration of a young woman’s psycho-sexual awakening at a time when all the rules were changing, when feminism and sexual liberation were on the rise, and what it meant to be a woman was no longer clearly defined. But it is also a story about human nature and those universal questions for any young woman--or man--who is coming of age: Who am I? Where am I going? And as the fantasy mermaid in the story so aptly puts it: “What is freedom without love?”
