I found this movie while flicking through the channels and found it to be an exceptionally made coming-of-age tale about a young girl. The performances were brilliant, as was the writing and the direction was first-class. I only saw the final half-hour of this film, but if that is anything to go by, then this is an incredible film. I shall look for a copy of this film on video so that I may see the rest of this sensational piece of film making. When I do, I shall post a more complete comment.
