I sat down to watch this dvd with my 12 year old daughter and quickly wished I hadn’t. It did provide some talking points with her, but I was horrified at the pressure to have all the right clothes and be a part of the “in” group. Is it really like that at schools in NZ? I hope not.
This is very much a check your brain at the door kind of film, and whilst the acting was good, the fashion fabulous, I just couldn’t get into it. Maybe that’s because I have a daughter that age who is just a little like Claire, and I’m happy about that!
From that standpoint, I don’t think I’ll be recommending this movie at all.
