A Real Tear Jerker
19 November 2004 | by (Llanelli, Wales) – See all my reviews

What Girls Learn has an extremely strong storyline which centres around the two youngest members of the cast,Alison Pill and Tamara Hope. Elizabeth Perkins gives a brilliant performance as the suffering 'Mama' and the troubled stepfather is played magnificently by Scott Bakula.

Considering this is a true story the film has been created extremely well and hopefully Karin Cook believes it does justice to her novel.

The bottom line is if you want a night in with a good film with no gory violence and needless swearing you will definitely enjoy this emotive and sensitive film. Which even though sounds like a real bore to some people could be appreciated by all. Enjoy
