Becoming Adult
12 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

It's a good story about how to choose a right choice of life? The question that everyone involves when pass the childhood and become an adult. So every single of us experimented many answers to the question and just like everyone ignored advices came from older people such as parents or teachers and ... .

I think this movie has a realistic look about this period of life and has some good answers to the question above. The story is interesting and some details are good. But the leading role (Emma Roberts who is one of my favorite actresses) isn't played great and some of scenes not make sense that needed. Anyway The story is good enough that some tiny problems can't affect too much.

If you are confused in adult's world and need some rest, it will be a good choice to watch this movie in theater or at home. Watch it and enjoy every single moment of your life...
