15 is a 2003 Singaporean film about teenage gangsters in the Singapore suburbs. Directed by Royston Tan, the film is an expanded version of Tan's 2002 award-winning short film, also titled 15. It is one of the few Singaporean films to feature brief full-frontal male nudity (in its uncensored version), together with the Singaporean-Thai film Pleasure Factory and the Singaporean-Hong Kong film Bugis Street.

Synopsis

The film stars three real-life juvenile gangsters, all aged 15, giving an accurate depiction of Chinese teenage gang-life in the Singapore suburbs. The 2003 film features two more gangsters as characters as well as a fight sequence with more affluent English-educated Singapore youths. Rather than scripting the movie or employing professional actors, Tan attempted to capture the troubled lives of his characters in realistic fashion, apparently without much prior scripting.

Zhang Xiao Wu est un jeune garçon d'une dizaine d'années vivant à Singapour. Il est livré à lui-même, entre une mère partie à l'étranger et ne le contactant que par téléphone et un père invisible dont on ne sait rien. Un jour, Jung, un coréen de trente ans dépressif emménage en colocation dans l'appartement. Il travaille la nuit et se couche chaque matin à quatre heures trente en prenant de puissants somnifères. C'est à ce moment que le jeune garçon vient l'observer. Il consigne ses découvertes dans un cahier. Il mène ainsi une vie monotone et solitaire, cohabitant avec un étranger qui semble ne pas le remarquer. Il n'arrive même pas à vivre normalement à l'école où il rattrape ses nuits sans sommeil. Peu à peu, le jeune garçon, malgré la barrière de la langue, va tenter de lier connaissance avec le jeune homme et s'ingénier à construire une impossible amitié dans une ambiance qui flirte avec le surréalisme.

In an upscale New York City mansion, wealthy and popular Kathryn Merteuil (Gellar) is discussing her prep school with Mrs. Caldwell (Christine Baranski) and Caldwell's daughter Cecile (Selma Blair). Kathryn promises Mrs. Caldwell that she will look out for the sheltered and naive Cecile. Sebastian (Phillippe) enters and Mrs. Caldwell reacts to him coldly and leaves with Cecile. Kathryn reveals that her real intention is to use Cecile to take revenge on Court, her ex-lover, who had dumped her for Cecile. Kathryn asks her step-brother Sebastian to seduce Cecile; he refuses as he is planning to seduce virgin Annette Hargrove (Witherspoon), the daughter of their school's headmaster. Annette is a 'paradigm of chastity and virtue' who recently wrote a published essay about saving herself for marriage and has been temporarily staying with Sebastian's aunt. The two make a wager: If Kathryn wins, she gets Sebastian's vintage Jaguar XK140; if Sebastian wins, Kathryn will have sex with him. It is mentioned that Sebastian keeps a journal detailing his conquests.
