Since Malibu brat Poppy Moore's mom passed away, she has pushed her rich, usually absent dad Gerry shamelessly. When his patience wears out, she's shipped off to her mother's former English boarding school for girls, Abbey Mount. On her first day she makes enemies of most dorm mates, especially dominant lacrosse school captain Harriet, and of staff disciplinarian Mrs. Kingsley. Unwilling to accept the strict regime, she decides to misbehave and take the blame for everyone until she's dismissed. The school only appealing feature for her is Kingsley's dashing son Freddie.

Don't hold it to high standards and it will exceed your expectations
You know, this is a teen movie. What can you really expect? I think, however, you will be pleasantly surprised by Wild Child. The cast doe an excellent job, with the teens carrying the movie pretty much themselves.
The story line, though mostly predictable, is nicely delivered and felt honest.
This is a great movie for families, or girls' night out! I am 26 and thoroughly enjoyed it with my friends!!! Of course, don't hold it to high standards, it won't meet them, but for what it is, it exceeded expectations.
