Good coming-of-age
26 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This isn't necessarily all that original, but it's able to infuse American approaches to this sort of film and twist them in its own way. The three lead performances from the girls are pretty strong, and their journey is well encapsulated, and even realistic. Granted, the film hits some sour patches at times, and I found myself somewhat disengaged, but by the end it all comes together nicely, even if in a somewhat inconsequential way. I don't really know what else to say, except that I'm not a very big fan of their music here (or even punk music in general, really). Overall, a nice little, colorful film, even if not great.
