Goofs

Whilst uploading her erotic story to the Le Passion site, it is briefly shown that there is no option for leaving one's phone number. Also, Amy did not attach a file, nor did she include her email address in the spaces provided on the submission form, therefore her receiving a phone call from the magazine is unlikely. See more »

The world seen by the eyes of an immature girl
15 June 2014 | by (Sfantu Gheorghe, Covasna, Romania) – See all my reviews

Amy dreams to become a successful poem writer. For this to be accomplished she needs money and someone to guide her. So she looks for a job and finds one at an adult shop. Forced by circumstances she accepts. Her parent doesn't know about this and after a fuss in witch Amy wants to have more liberty and the desire to be free and not be treated as a little girl, runs away from home and goes to live with Rubia, a transsexual that she mets at her new workplace. Destiny makes that she will be in a more warm relationship with her favorite poet that she sees him as a mentor. Rat offers his advice to her but soon finds out that his number one fan may not be 100% sane and decides to dedicate a special book just to her.

In this movie Emma Roberts is very irritating and annoying, we have to assist at her nerve attacks. Of course take part of her role and she is convincing, in fact she is a talented actress but maybe this part is not very suitable with her capacities. The film is watchable still the action takes place in small steps. It's the kind of picture that you can watch 15 minutes and FF another 15 and you will not miss anything. In fact if you view 30 minutes then continue the next day with another 30 and you finish the film in the third day, it may be more bearable.
