Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Eva Lasting is a show about a smart teen girl named Eva who, in 1976, becomes the first female at an all-boys high school in Bogotá, Colombia. The sex, drinking, and smoking showcased in this series makes it more appropriate for older teens and adults. Teens visit brothels and have sex with sex workers. Teen boys go to XXX-rated movies and often look at porno magazines. Cigarette smoking and beer drinking is common among adults and teens. Character strengths include courage and communication. In Spanish with dubbing and subtitles available.
Is It Any Good?
Plucky and sometimes rewarding, this retro-styled show requires that viewers wade through the smarmy machismo standards of 1970s Colombia. Or is the era an excuse to hark back to bygone eras of unapologetic peeks down a teacher's blouse? In Eva Lasting, though the heroine often gets the last laugh, it's worth asking if the end justifies the means.
Definitely not for younger teens or sensitive viewers, this show can be entertaining for mature audiences. The bright-colored clothes and sensitive eyes of the teenage hero who pines for the new girl harkens back to teen movies of the 1970s, but the penchant for porn and sex work can feel like an overstatement for the modern viewer.
