A gritty artifact from Britain's 1970s counter-culture, PERMISSIVE is a tragically moving account of a young woman's initiation into the world of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. Suzy (Maggie Stride) arrives in London without a penny, to visit her school friend Fiona (Gay Singleton). Fiona soon introduces Suzy to the life of a groupie, filled with short-lived highs and lingering, jealousy-fueled lows. After a series of indolent affairs, Suzy gets dumped for a band's tour, and has to fend for herself on the streets. Shot on authentically seedy locations, with a psychedelic soundtrack provided by cult rockers Comus and Forever More, PERMISSIVE is a powerful, de-mythologized look at the end of hippie-dom.
