Wild Hollywood starlet sent to Midwest to get it together.
12 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a really good made for TV movie which has recently made its debut on Lifetime. A drunk and out of control, young Hollywood actress is sent by her family and agent to Ft. Wayne, Indiana, to go to high school, dry out, and learn some values. This movie really picks up as she integrates into her new school environment. This is the first lead role for Joanne "JoJo" Levesque and I would respectfully suggest that she serves notice here that she will be a major force as an actress in the very near future. In this film, and Aquamarine, she has a very watchable and likable presence. Being only 17, a bright future is in front of her as an actress if she wants it. As most are aware, she is already a star in the recording industry and she has stated that is her primary focus. I would hope to see more of her in film in the very near future. Valerie Bertinelli is also very good here as a wizened aunt who helps to straighten the misfit starlet out. Fellow student Eli is also very well portrayed in this film. All and all, this film is topical, timely and well worth the effort of all involved including the viewer.
