Storyline

Since Malibu brat Poppy Moore's mom passed away, she has pushed her rich, usually absent dad Gerry shamelessly. When his patience wears out, she's shipped off to her mother's former English boarding school for girls, Abbey Mount. On her first day she makes enemies of most dorm mates, especially dominant lacrosse school captain Harriet, and the school's principal Mrs. Kingsley. Unwilling to accept the strict regime, she decides to misbehave and take the blame for everyone until she's dismissed. The school only appealing feature for her is Kingsley's dashing son Freddie. When the dream prince transfers his favor from ambitious, uptight Harriet to unruly Poppy, that changes everything. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Poppy's quoting from the end of Pride and Prejudice shows that the film was written by Americans as it's from an alternate ending to the film that was added for US audiences and wasn't in the UK version. See more »

Goofs

On Poppy's first day at lunch, she tells her dorm mates she can't eat the food because she is "pescetarian Monday through Wednesday, fruitarian Thursady through Sunday and vegetarian ALWAYS". This isn't possible as pescetarian's eat fish and vegetarians don't. The two were mixed up. See more »

Quotes

A great Drama movie
11 December 2008 | by See all my reviews

You have to absolutely see this movie. It contains lot of things movies these days don't have, like friendship, how you feel a friend let you down kind of things. actually I have to admit that it's so well written and Directed to make the viewer more emotional and to show the joy in friendship. this is a must watch movie and I prefer it to all persons who are aged above the MPAA rating of the film. And another thing about this movie is It's more real life than other movies I've seen like how characters behave kind of things and of course the movie casting Director had done a awesome job because the Actors and actresses fits well to the characters you'll definitely fell that when you are watching "Wild Child" movie. And the music is well matched to the scene and to the feeling of the scene. Everything is perfect the story line, direction, music This is a must watch movie as I mentioned before.
