The Last Keepers, 2013.
Directed by Maggie Greenwald.
A young woman and her family discover she has magical powers, possibly fulfilling a prophecy that has been in their family for years. She must negotiate that with the everyday tribulations of school and growing up.

It’s with this slightly sarcastic front that I met the film, a synopsis about a young woman’s story of growing up with magical potential not grabbing me as much as, say, explosions and men wearing capes. But part of the way through I realised, though not perfect, The Last Keepers is a film you need to meet halfway. If done so, it’s an enjoyable, if short movie that tells the age-old story that growing up is hard. »

This leads her on a tale of wonder and magic as she tries to figure out who she is and what she can do with this new found power.
The Last Keepers is a tale of love and magic. It deals with the awkwardness of high school, bullying, young romance and family troubles, sometimes to an almost cheesy level but »
