I’m looking for movies which have elements of an adult female having or encountering a relationship with a adolescent or young adult male.
I’ve made a list of my current top 10 – http://mubi.com/lists/adult-female-male-child-relationship-films
Feel free to add suggestions that I can add to the list.
The Reader comes to mind.
But that movie was poopy.
How Stella Got Her Groove Back
Y Tu Mama Tambien
I’d have to thumb through Ex-Iles: Essays on Caribbean Cinema again, but there are plenty of movies throughout the Caribbean, a lot in Jamaica, that are about sex tourism without all the romanticism that is apparently in Heading South.
I recommend Martin (1977) by George Romero, one of his best films but not very well known.
Vers le sud
El espinazo del diablo
In The Bedroom
Le fantome de la liberte
Lust och fagring stor
There are two film adaptations of Raymond Radiguet’s “The Devil and the Flesh”. One from the 40’s and one from the 70’s by Marco Bellochio.
tea and sympathy (1956) d. vincente minnelli
Ali: Fear Eats the Soul, Le Souffle au Coeur (incestuous undertones), and maybe Room at the Top (though the Lithuanian lead Zvi Mosheh Skikne wasn’t so young)
Bertolucci’s Prima della rivoluzione and Bogdanovich’s The Last Picture Show.
Keep em coming, proving very useful for a new list
Jacqueline Bissett, Sylvia Kristel and a few other actresses made some bad 80s sex comedies with that theme, but I can’t recall the titles.

Private Lessons and Class.
oh, thanks ZBart. tnt used to show those kind of movies endlessly on weekend afternoons.
Tadpole I couldn’t get through it but maybe I will give it another shot.
BTW, I see you have Murmur of the Heart at #1. Someone said on IMDb a while ago that the scene where Laurent “does” his mother was taken from Proust’s Within a Budding Grove I’ll have to check that out someday. I especially liked the scene with the reading of Der Unhold by Laurent and his little friend.
Le Petit Amour/Kung Fu Master
Moment By Moment (1979) Travolta/Tomlin – “Gold Jerry. Gold”
Someday it will be released in triple feature DVD with Bobby Deerfield and Giorgio.
Breillat’s Brief Crossing, of course!
Rabbit Hole, Birth, To Die For (3 Nicole Kidmans)
Well if we’re doing incest, Spanking the Monkey fits the bill.
Cheri (2009) d. Stephen Frears with Michelle Pfieffer.
Also the dreadful 1978 In Praise of Older Women.
@Z. Bart – how could we forget Jim Carrey and Lauren Hutton in 1985’s Once Bitten….
Birth and The Reader are two of the most disturbing I can think of, and also two of the most underrated.
Summer of ’42
The Tin Drum (icky, but brilliant)
