From Straight A's to XXX

Synopsis: When a change of circumstances leaves Miriam unable to pay her college tuition, she makes a surprising decision: to start performing in adult films, using the pseudonym Belle Knox. Miriam lies to her family and her friends at school, keeping her double life a secret. But soon rumours spread and Miriam becomes the subject of vicious online attacks and unwanted attention. Miriam fights back: she talks to the media, saying her new line of work empowers her as a feminist. But her confident stand has unintended consequences. Miriam is shunned by her conservative family and her colleagues in the adult film world. One impulsive decision has quickly spiralled out of control - and Miriam's problems are being held against her

Hi, I'm Belle.

I'd like to add this sub

to my third contention

but I'm worried about time.

You can chart it on your flow

and make the call

when you're up there.

Oh my god. One o'clock.

I think he's on the other team.

I will gladly argue the negative

on that case.

First, he has zero nerd cred.

Secondly, he's imminently

do-able.

If I'm wondering what

he looks like naked,

which I am,

then there's no way

he's on the team.

You have a boyfriend.

I'm just saying.

Next we have a Lincoln-Douglas

style debate

on whether it is morally

permissible for a victim

to use deadly force

as a deliberate response

to repeated domestic violence.

Speaking for the affirmative

from Ferndale Prep,

Miss Miriam Weeks.

Miriam?

Make it rain, girl.

I affirm the resolution that

it is morally permissible

for victims to use deadly force

as a deliberate response

to repeated domestic violence.

I define "moral" as pertaining

to, or concerned with,

the principles of right

and wrong.

"Permissible" as permitted

or allowable.

A "victim" as a person who

suffers from a destructive

or injurious action or agency.

My value for this debate

is justice.

Plato defines "justice" as

doing well to one's friend

if he's good

and harming one's enemy

if he is evil.

Miriam, can you come in here?

You got something

in the mail today.

It's from uh, Duke University.

You ever heard of that place?

Oh, honey. Just give it to her.

Let me see it.

Aah.

Oh my gosh, this is it.

It's a big envelope.

Is that good?

Only one way to find out.

I got in!

Yes!

Bring it in.

See? I told you.

When you put your studies first

and you're willing to work hard-

Good things happen.

What kind of financial aid

package did they offer?

That part of the offer appears

to be a little underwhelming.

It's Duke though.

But Vanderbilt offered you

a full ride.

It's just as good a school.

But Duke is my dream school,

and it's number one for pre-law.

It's your decision.

If Duke is what you

have your heart set on

then we'll figure out a way

to make the finances work.

Thank you, daddy!

To the graduates.

Here, here.

To Miriam and Josh.

So, big day little sis.

Do you feel any different now

that it's official?

Mmm, not really.

I'm just relieved, mostly.

All the hard work paid off.

And now you can't be mad

about having a strict curfew.

I can still be a little mad.

Uh, wait.

Let's say grace.

Lord, thank you for these gifts

which we are about to receive

through the bounty of Christ.

Amen.

Amen.

Amen.

Hey. What's going on?

You're being really weird.

No, I'm not.

Yeah, you are.

I just don't need you hanging

on me every second, ok?

Look. I'm sorry.

But I feel like I need

to be honest.

We're gonna be 3,000 miles away

from each other next year and I-

No-

I don't think that

it's such a good idea

if either of us are tied down.

You know I'm crazy about you.

But it just makes sense.

I want to have fun, and

I want you to have fun.

You're gonna go to Duke

and you're gonna meet guys

and you're gonna wanna go

on dates and party-

No, don't tell me what I want.

This is about you and the fact

that you want to get

with other girls, just say it.

I made up my mind.

Don't embarrass yourself,

Miriam.

This is such a beautiful campus.

This map is basically

hieroglyphics.

I think that building

over there is her dorm.

Yeah, that's it.

Hello?

This is he.

Dad? Are you coming?

Just a moment.

I'll catch up with you.

I have to take this.

Go ahead.

Ok.

Is this a co-ed building?

Mom, most dorms are co-ed.

I don't think that's true.
