A New York playwright named Bert V. Royal adapted the classic into the story of a girl in high school who finds that her life is reflecting the infamous Hester Prynne's, "after she pretends to be the school slut in hopes she'll benefit from the notion she's promiscuous." Get the title? The scarlet "A" for adultery mixed with the notion of grades? They definitely get an A for the effort of connecting the two works in the title.
As for the film, it's all up to what Gluck (Fired Up) brings us, and whether he can make a flick that will fall into the ranks of Clueless and Emma, or Cruel Intentions and Dangerous Liaisons. However, do we really need another account of a clueless girl who makes bad decisions and gets shunned for them? More importantly, yet more films where the girl thinks that sleeping around, real or imaginary, is a benefit? Methinks Juno should pay her a visit and set her straight.
