Great acting and story
18 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very well acted and solid story line. Actors worked very well together with believable emotion.well directed...flowed well Breslin was exceptional Story believable Good locations Interesting sequences Strong emotions Great music Solid singing Connects with audience...will go to see it again. I will encourage others to go see also. Music flowed very well in the story line. Janie Jones character could have more negative qualities to make her more believable. Movie will be popular with multiple age segments. Girls under 18 will connect with the main character easily. Sequel might be interesting to see how Janie Jones character grows up. I plan to take family members to the film. Goos family picture. Sound track should be popular especially with teen girls.
