Smart, funny and real…
I went to see this movie with my wife and, upon entering the theater,
immediately became uncomfortable. There was only one other man at the
screening and he was obviously feeling a little out of place as well
(although he seemed relieved to see me walk in). I was expecting a teen
soap opera, but what the movie delivered was quite different. This
movie is more like a modern-times "Little Women" or a teen girl version
of "Dead Poets Society". In other words, it's something that I haven't
seen any sign of for decades….an intelligent drama aimed at teenage
girls. My response to seeing this movie was similar to how i felt after
seeing "Babe". I know this is an odd comparison, but both were
thoughtful, intelligent movies aimed at a target audience that is
usually fed cinematic rubbish. The elements of good film-making are on
full display here. Strong acting, sure-handled directing, terrific
writing….everything that makes a movie great. If you are a teenage
girl or have one in your life, this is an absolutely must-see movie. If
you don't, you'll still have a good time.
