You can't blame director Martin Gero and his co-writer Aaron Abrams for naming their romantic sex comedy Young People F---ing - it's an honest description of the content and it guaranteed people would be talking about it for the run of the festival. Once word got out that the title was the most graphic thing about it, a lot of the buzz boiled away... but then audiences saw the film, realized it was an intelligent, largely sweet-natured romantic comedy with plenty of sharp lines among the simulated boinking and that started up a whole new conversation.
