Plot Summary:
The forbidden-love story The Debut (1977) was the first full-length feature from pioneering filmmaker Nouchka van Brakel. Following the theme of Stanley Kubrick’s Lolita (1962) and Michael Powell’s Age of Consent (1969) – only this time time told from a female perspective – van Brakel’s The Debut (1977) tells the delicate story off the impossible love between a teenage girl and a middle-aged married man. Based on the controversial novel by Hester Albach, The Debut is a subversive comedy drama and the first commercially successful Dutch theatrical film directed by a woman.    Cult Epics presents Nouchka van Brakel’s The Debut for the first time on Blu-ray in North America in a new High-definition transfer.

“At long last, a movie that improves upon the book.” - Skoop

“The film owes the presence of MARINA DE GRAAF as Carolien, to the fact that THE DEBUT is well worth watching. A true discovery, that girl. Precisely directed by Nouchka van Brakel into a true creation!” - Elsevier

“The introduction of the characters is so good, the narrative method in film images so adequate, the choice of characteristic human details so striking that the spectator is completely captivated by THE DEBUT.” - Haagse Courant
