When Camille (Louise Grinberg), a middle-class beauty, becomes pregnant at 16, she decides to keep the baby — and over a dozen of her friends follow suit, getting knocked up by whomever, as if teen single motherhood were the coolest of fads. This French film is based on real events that occurred in a port city in France in 2008, and to a distressing (and dramatically thin) degree, the movie shares its heroines' la-di-da attitude. Rarely has "girl power" been made to look so clueless. C
