I knew the film dealt with the sexuality of a 15-year-old girl (something that definitely turned a lot of older people off to the film) and it won Best Screenplay at the Tribeca Film Festival. I enjoyed the film, but something felt a little off. And then I realized Turn Me On Dammit should have been a short film, not a feature film.
