Liberated: The New Sexual Revolution is a documentary about today's young adult hookup culture. The film follows the journey of college students during their Spring Break revelries, offering an insightful look into their attitudes and behaviors regarding sex. It is an honest and raw depiction of this casual sex environment where sexual violation has become normal. Liberated widens the view of today's hookup culture by examining the role of pop-culture in shaping conceptions of gender and sexuality that underlie this new sexual revolution.Written by
What Reviewer Lupus_22 has called feminist propaganda and grossly misreported is actually a refreshingly spot-on cultural snapshot. What's more is the entire snapshot is provided by candid interviews of Spring Break partiers, from complete dude-bros to stoners to college gals and even students from foreign countries. Instead of anyone's propaganda, the film puts Spring Breakers front and center to explain exactly what sex means and doesn't mean to them; what masculinity and femininity mean to them; and where love does or doesn't fit into the picture. Most men and women under 40 watching this who attended college can relate to everything described by each person interviewed-they are describing our own realities.
The raw descriptions, protocols, and attitudes of the Spring Breakers are contextualized by American and foreign social scientists and media experts. The overall stories and analysis provides a complete picture and leaves the viewer reflecting about our own experiences and hopefully thinking critically about how they make us feel and what we might prefer to change, if we could.
I found this to be accessible and constructive. Mature viewers able to think critically about our culture and how it shapes us may be best suited for this film.
