A subtle look at adolescent desire and drama during War.

Secret Places is a nicely acted story set in World War II when Germany was invading England. It just so happens that Laura, the new girl in a private English school is German...not a Nazi mind you. She Befriends Patience, a classmate who has developed a crush on Laura. Marie There's Relin is sexy without intent. She is the new girl in school and everyone seems to be looking at her as a Nazi and mesmerized by her beauty. Laura has her family problems effecting her on top of school woes and adolescent drama.

Secret Places is a subtle film that touches on our secret places of desire. It suggests that as adolescents, we dwell in places that we keep secret when it comes to attraction and emotion. Then, to deal with our parents and a war that makes no sense. The two leads make the film special. It is a film about friendship most of all.
