Georgy Girl | 1966 | James Mason, Lynn Redgrave

James Mason and Lynn Redgrave won Oscar nominations for their roles in this wild British comedy of sexual manners. Redgrave is Georgy, a frumpy dance teacher and 22-year-old virgin. Meredith (Charlotte Rampling) is Georgy’s roommate, a wild child committed to shaking up Georgy’s life–and she succeeds. Soon Georgy is deciding between two older men. There’s James (James Mason), the rich, middle-age friend of her parents who wants to be Georgy’s sugar daddy. And then there’s Meredith’s father (Alan Bates), who Georgy falls for when he comes to visit Meredith. What’s a virgin-turned-seductress to do?
