During these two months of freedom, she explores her true self and approaches a more poetic and liberal culture, for her, a new way of life that slowly unfolds as she rummages through the belongings that the former renter, a guy her age, has left in the apartment.

31 March 2013 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Although this film was cantered on the main character and a bit slow to get into - it was like watching a short period of her life as she was living it. Her determination to find herself should inspire many young people to leave home. It isn't easy but rewarding to see the results.

Many young people do not appreciate the sacrifices that parents make especially single parents to provide everything for their child so they have a better life. But she was right. She wasn't asked whether she wanted it that way. As a single parent of a nearly 17 year old I decided to allow my child some freedom to develop into her own self. Today many young people go out into the world without the right tools to survive because they have been too protected.

This film is an excellent representation of a young woman who rebels against that comfortable and over protected environment.
