So loosely inspired by actual events as to qualify for practical purposes as fiction, “Restless Virgins” is nevertheless an unexpectedly compelling look at the caste system, cruelty and casual sex at a privileged prep school. Even a Hollywood ending can’t entirely sour this well-made drama, featuring strong central performances by “Switched at Birth’s” Vanessa Marano and Max Lloyd-Jones. Lifetime has been laboring to get younger, which explains the salacious title and subject matter. Still, examining teenagers who have essentially divorced sex from emotion should carry its own cautionary resonance among parents as well.
