Loved it!
7 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Loved this movie,was only 16,had just met and fallen in love with my husband to be,so a real memorable movie for me,really captured what its like to be a teenager in love,when the world seems against you and teenagers really do know whats best for them sometimes and adults can get it so wrong.The anger, frustration and despair of Lola was portrayed so well by Kylie,the music was great ,the actors were great,i loved the scene when they were all dancing and Lola holds the baby ,so the mom can have a proper dance,and when she tells the women who's house shes been sent to live in what she thinks of her after she finds shes hidden Brownies letters,is just amazing.
