Very Enjoyable

I remember watching this on British TV when it was first released, I doubt if it will ever be released on DVD or blueray but one can hope. This was part of a series of dramas called 'First Love on Channel 4. The story centres around a young girl Louise, (played by Anna Jones), who has recently lost her father. She discovers some items belonging to her father which shows that he was a Freemason and had a secret side. sent to boarding school she confides to friends what she has found. This film is a coming of age, about being on the edge of leaving childhood behind but still filled with the naiveté of youth, it's about friendship and discovering boys but most of all I suppose about how misconceptions and assumptions can lead us all astray. Recommended viewing if you get the chance to see it, it will make you smile!
