Lauded by critics as the finest film of the year, Taboo American Style is the four-part saga of a young woman's sexual awakening, and the power she attains with it. In part 1, Nina gets her first taste of passion with her best friend's boyfriend. Her newfound desires turn her middle-class family upside-down.
Taboo American Style stars Raven, Paul Thomas, Gloria Leonard, Taija Rae, Sharon Kane, Tom Byron, Joey Silvera, R. Bolla, and Kelly Nichols in a perverse melodrama about an affluent suburban family torn apart by ******. Following up the success of Kirdy Stevens' Taboo and its sequels, Pachard directed the AmericanStyle series in 1985 for producers Herb Nitke and Nick Bougas of NIBO Films. The four movies played individually in theaters at the tail-end of ****'s Golden Age and later became home video bestsellers for VCA Pictures.
