I didn't even know I liked it until the end
1 September 2014 | by westpenn49See all my reviews

The Unlikely Girl is a bit of an unlikely movie. If you read the description on Netflix you won't even understand that what you are seeing is the right movie until about 20 minutes in. It is confusing at times, but on second viewing, as in many great misdirection movies, things become clear(er).

The story is somewhat about the American exchange student as Netflix advertises, but she is more of a foil for the story itself and serves as a stand in for us the viewers as we live through the twists and turns of life.

The who's the what's and the why's are ours to determine but it is undeniable that Wei Ling Chang has brought a lot of talent to this effort and she largely succeeds in a compelling story, well acted (Shane Lynch's Jamie is obnoxious but grows on you and is well pretty much the girl next door and that honesty and innocence is important) The incredible thing is that the more you watch the more you discover, the more you discover the less you know . . .and yet it all works.

Bravo Wei Ling Chang. I can't wait to see what else you can do.
