We gave it a B-

On the HBO comedy Extras, Daniel Radcliffe played a child star who bragged, ”I’ve done it with a girl, intercourse-wise.” But he actually lost his onscreen virginity in this Australian drama, filmed in 2005 and now finally being released. Here he’s ”Maps,” an orphan sent on a holiday, where he smokes and drinks and learns about sex from a local girl (Teresa Palmer). Says Radcliffe, ”I had to do something different before the Potter films ended, rather than trying to break away after they’re done.” Mission accomplished.
