So the plot for this is basically girl goes to arts school and is happy, girl gets sent to military school by step-dad, girl hates military school due to conformity and lack of individualism, girl eventually grows to love military school. This is exactly what we should be presenting to our kids right? Individuality is overrated. What really scares me is there seems to be some underlying political agenda with this picture being directed at kids that glorifies militarism. Isn't this the last thing we want to be presenting to the younger generation? Or are we so obsessed with a warped sense of patriotism that we can't see past the ends of our noses anymore?
