Goofs

When Alba was in class and put a child in a corner by the door she wrote two large numbers on the black board and wanted the children to tell her what sign (greater or less than) to put between them. When the child made a sound to get her attention you could see the less than sign already written on the board, but it was missing after the child from the corner gave the correct answer and the teacher wrote it on the board.

A lonely film
21 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is a strange one but i would have to rate it higher than most. The main character is a more realistic version of what someone would actually be that had insecurity issues. I really enjoyed this film because I can relate the main character and what she feels like sometimes. There aren't many films that do focus on this aspect on life in such a real way, which many of us go through. that is why i had to give it such a high rating. As well as this Jessica Alba plays a really innocent cute character, something a little different from her usual

The film is funny, sad, inspiring, and a bit weird. If you enjoy indie films you will most probably like this. If you are lonely and have social issues you will probably like this.
