Storyline

Megan's approaching 30 with a good degree and a boyfriend in hand, but when he proposes at her friend's wedding and everyone seems to think that the best way to advance in her career is to take a seminar where you find out what animal you are, Megan's understandably feeling lost. After meeting teenagers who want her to buy them beer, Megan is drawn into 16-year-old Annika's simpler life. She ends up moving in with Annika and her single father, juggling the life of a teen and that of an adult, two romantic interests, and the feeling of lagging behind. Written by Anne Campbell

Quotes

Megan: Okay, I'm gonna tell you two things that I've gotten some perspective on after being out of high school for a while now. The first is that a lot of the math they're teaching you that they swear you'll use in your life, you won't. You're never going to need to use parabolas and you really, really don't need to know shapes that have more than eight fucking sides.

..it gets to ya.. it really does..
14 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There's a very brief sidewalk dance sequence early on in the film that gives clear indication why so may fans are fiercely loyal and just adore Kiera. There's lots of good portrayals in this movie, but there is just something special about her in this work, and it's one of the best things she's done. Watching the film, it naturally unfolds what is happening to her, and the evolution of her character to a place where we all fully realize she needs to be going. This is a very well made, and truly enjoyable little film. With characters that are fun to watch and briefly partake in their lives. All those responsible for casting are to be most highly praised.. the group they have put together is perfect for the production, none are out of place. It's the kind of film that can and should be watched again.. to be enjoyed as much as the first time round.
