about a girl
20 May 2004 | by (PHILLY) – See all my reviews

I started watching this film one night over winter break. I had plans to go out and I was maybe 15 minutes into the film and I thought "I'll have to catch this sometime." But then there she was- Amanda. I sat there and watched her change the whole film... and it's a great film, but the jewel of the movie doesn't show up until about 20 minutes into it, and then your hooked. I've looked everywhere for this movie, and I can't find it. I've searched hi and low for other films starring Lake Lattimer- and I've got zilch. Does anyone know what else she's been in. If not, does anyone know how I can get a copy of this film. She's mesmorizing in every way. Her talent is evident in every facial expression and every line that comes out of her (perfect) mouth. She will make you remember this film months after you've seen it- you'll lose sleep wondering if you'll ever get to see it again.
