I watched Easy A over the weekend. And I have to say one of my favorite parts of the movie was a song from Lenka "Trouble is a friend". I've found, though, that I like the Spike Stent remix of it which they used for the soundtrack. Its a moody tune which really gave a feel of the trouble brewing in the film.

The film is about a clean cut school girl who decides to say We did DO IT when they didn't. Which leads to a lot of rumors at school about her reputation. The movie uses the Scarlet Letter as part of its theme and premise. Although, definitely different scenarios.

Yet the underlying theme is the using women for their own purpose. One for status. The original, just because he felt like it, and she had to pay the consequence.

But back to the song Trouble is a friend by Lenka. Lenka is Lenka Kripac, an Australian singer song writer. She's also an actress of TV and film, mostly down under, but her music has been in Old Navy commercials, as well. Her father is a Jazz musician.
