Buy it Now is a film in two parts about a 16-year-old girl who sells her virginity on eBay. at least that's what the tag line says. in actuality, it's a searing and moving portrait of a troubled adolescent who is surrounded by a society obsessed with consumerism and by parents entirely oblivious to the reality of their daughter's life. rather than being exploitative or sensational, Buy it Now gives a tender and often disturbing look at the lives of teenagers today.

this is a fantastic film...tremendously conceived, beautifully made, wonderfully acted. it is also a difficult film to watch, so it may not appeal to the average viewer; but the talent of everybody involved is obvious. 10 stars for this daring and well-made film!
