"it's been a long time since a film provoked so many emotions from me"
As the credits rolled, I sat in my seat feeling very surprised; surprised at how much I loved this film! There I was, thinking we were about to watch a mediocre teen flick, showing off Julia Roberts' young niece (Emma Roberts). Instead I got everything from; love triangles, abandonment, friendship, recklessness, brilliant acting...and an amazing wardrobe!
It's been a long time since a film provoked so many emotions from me. I gasped, laughed out loud and even welled up at the end, where an overly sentimental ending could've easily ruined the magic built up in the previous 100 minutes - but somehow the (relatively unknown) director Nick Moore and the cast managed to make it work.
Having been to a boarding school similar to Abbey Mount I was excited and pleased to see how spot on they were with our public school antics - from tight french braids, squabbling over the one boy in sight to the horrible cooked dinners and hierarchy formalities. Poppy's journey to find herself is a lot of fun and I think teenagers across the globe will all be quoting her for years to come.
All together now "WHO ARE WE" !?
