Directed by Gurinder Chadha (Bend It Like Beckham, Bride & Prejudice), ANGUS, THONGS AND PERFECT SNOGGING is a coming of age story - a very British take on American high school movies like Clueless and Mean Girls. Based on the first two books of the hughly successful series by Louise Rennison, the film follows the eccentric and irresistible Georgia Nicolson as she overcomes the trauma of being a teenager and moves up the "snogging scale". Misunderstood by her ancient parents, but buoyed up by the love of her cat Angus and her best friends - "The Ace Gang" - Georgia struggles through life seeking out her two main desires: 1. To get a gorgeous sex-god as her boyfriend and 2. To throw the greatest 15th birthday party ever.
When handsome brothers Tom and Robbie arrive at school, Georgia thinks her boyfriend dreams have been answered. But when she sees Robbie with her arch rival Lindsay, she devises a plan to show Robbie that she's the mature, sophisticated girlfriend he deserves. Unfortunately Georgia's plans - involving snogging lessons, stalking Lindsay, and dying her legs orange - don't exactly run smoothly.
Alongside her own romance problems Georgia's parents are going through a turbulent time, with the result being that Georgia feels the responsibility for holding the family together rests on her shoulders. In her quest to get Robbie and keep her family from splitting, Georgia transforms from a selfish girl into a young woman.
Georgia Nicolson is played by Georgia Groome. Playing fellow Ace Gang members are Eleanor Tomlinson as Jas, Georgia Henshaw as Rosie and Manjeeven Grewal as Ellen. Aaron Johnson, Sean Bourke, Alan Davies, Karen Taylor and T4's Steve Jones (making his acting debut) also star.
