This story is set in the "in-between" time of a girl's life, when she is no longer a child and not yet a woman. We open with our heroine, Maeve, putting on her new snow white bra, and stepping out into the world as a young woman. She has an obsession with breasts and bras and can't help but stare at other girls and women, even the head nun doesn't escape her gaze. Otherwise, her world revolves around her three friends, Ruth, Claire and Orla, who are more experienced in the ways of the world. They wear bras already (except Claire the feminist) and they've all had boyfriends. The new bra is a start but they really hope Maeve can find a fella, even offering kissing lessons to prepare her. What no one expects, least of all Maeve, is that she should snare the local sixteen-year old heartthrob. Maeve is so smitten with him that she lets her friends down when they need her the most. In trouble with her friends and in school, she gets dumped by the heartthrob when she sneaks into the local ... Written by

I can't understand the other comment here. Clearly didn't get it. I went to see it in Balbriggan. I didn't like the poster at all but read so many good reviews online that we thought we'd give it a go. I'm glad we did.
It was fantastic. Really like all four girls and their performances, the story is so true to life, it really brings you back. The music, the photography, the whole look was wonderful. I particularly appreciated all the small nuances in the family life of the girls.
This is a simple story, not a huge story but one where the little details tell it really, it captures growing up in an intelligent way. One of the best Irish films I've seen.
