Quotes

Lola: Your definition? It's lucky the world isn't made according to your definiton,'cause it would be an ugly one. With all your cakes and frocks and olives but no love. 'Cause that's the thing you fear most, isn't it, love? You're afraid of it,you try and kill it in other people, but you can't stop people from loving each other! You can throw away all Brownie's letters but you can't keep him from me, because he's in me.

Loved it!
7 February 2007 | by beck-b-1See all my reviews

Loved this movie,was only 16,had just met and fallen in love with my husband to be,so a real memorable movie for me,really captured what its like to be a teenager in love,when the world seems against you and teenagers really do know whats best for them sometimes and adults can get it so wrong.The anger, frustration and despair of Lola was portrayed so well by Kylie,the music was great ,the actors were great,i loved the scene when they were all dancing and Lola holds the baby ,so the mom can have a proper dance,and when she tells the women who's house shes been sent to live in what she thinks of her after she finds shes hidden Brownies letters,is just amazing.
