29 October 2015 | by kellybachman336See all my reviews

At the conclusion of this beautiful film, my first thought was "FINALLY." Finally, a teenage girl in a film who actually reminds me of my adolescent self, finally a teenage girl story that is reflective of real experiences which are very relatable for many women today.

Leah Meyerhoff's direction was magical, and truly captured the perspective of a teenage girl. The acting was superb, and every scene animated or not was a piece of art. I could go on, but I'll end by noting that this film inspired me to want to tell real stories about women; stories that matter.

Thank you Leah!
