Big thumbs up here
29 December 2000 | by (Cambelltown, Australia) – See all my reviews

I really liked this movie. It has the intimacy and pace of a very good teenage-book, in the style of Robin Klein, and has some fine acting to boot, especially Aleska Pallidino as Maddy. I can't believe it has only recieved a rating of 5.1 on the viewer scale, which leads me to the conclusion that this movie won't suit all tastes. You're either going to hate this movie, if you have no patience, or you're going to love it like I did. Big thumbs up.
