I am not a good writer, so I would never do this movie justice, but I have to say GO SEE IT, and take your 13 and up kids with you! I wish there were more movies like this out there. It is based on a true story and I think it kept real with reality. It's gotten some pretty hard knocks from critics (who I suspect are pro-letting kids drink and ruin their lives), but don't listen to them, SERIOUSLY, they are all *twirls her finger around her ear* wink, wink.
If you see it and love it, give the critics an earful, because with their negative attitudes we'll never get a good flood into the market of clean good movies.
Michelle, you should go see it and write a review, you're good at that!
