  • Summary: Virgin is the story of Jessie, a rebellious teenager, wrestling with her own spirituality and against her family's conservative Baptist tradition. After a sexual encounter occurring while unconscious from alcohol and drugs, Jessie finds herself pregnant. With no memory of sex and having a dream in which God speaks to her, Jessie proceeds with the belief that she is carrying the next Christ child, a belief that at first enrages and then inspires her, causing violent opposition in her community.

    I was haunted afterward by its seething rage at the malicious paternalism and sexual hypocrisy of fundamentalist Christians.

    The performance by Ross invests Jessie with a kind of zealous hope that is touching: Here is a slutty loser touched by the divine, and transformed.

    An unconventional fairy-tale. There are no monsters to kill, the Prince character doesn't strike you as too charming, and the heroine is not the fairest maiden in the land.
  4. Reviewed by: Robert Koehler
    The film is never quite as startling or mysterious as it seems to want to be, leaving it in an uncertain cinematic limbo.

    Ms. Kampmeier never brings her themes into tight focus. At one moment, the film is a detailed but familiar attack on smothering small towns and oppressive family structures; at another, it's a fable of feminist empowerment with an oddly fervent religious background.
  6. An unfortunately muddled portrait of a teenage girl going through a moral and spiritual crisis.
  7. Reviewed by: Melissa Anderson
    Kampmeier's muddled, miserable first feature about maculate conception will make you look back fondly on 1985, the year Godard's "Hail Mary" and Norman Jewison's "Agnes of God" came out.

    Entertaining only because of how rediculous the entire film is. Wrought with unintentional humor.
