Turn Me On, Goddammit: Interview with Helene Bergsholm
"In her very first acting role, Norwegian high schooler Helene Bergsholm stars as Alma in Jannicke Systad Jacobsen's Turn Me On, Goddammit, a frank and fetching coming-of-age story in which reality blends seamlessly with sexual fantasies. The film, which had its world premiere at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival, explores the dynamics and pitfalls of teen sexuality in a hilarious, pitch-perfect script that never lapses in taste. When Alma recounts a gauche pass made by a boy she likes at a party, she must contend with denial and ridicule.
