1 July 2015 | by danettewilsonSee all my reviews

I recently saw this film and the characters all resemble someone I know. To be on the cusp of being a child and a woman and all that that entails. I know what it's like to be in that time in your life and feel like the world is rotating around you and you're just standing there. It's hard to become a productive adult and hold on to that child like abandon. This film shows the main character becoming a woman and getting over her fears. It was cast very well. Every actor seemed to fit seamlessly into this world. The characters were thoughtfully fleshed out and purposeful. They also all showed me that no matter what age, people are still dreamers and still struggle with following their heads vs. their hearts. The writing and directing expressed that very well. I liked the music (I'm a HUGE music lover) and the photography was gorgeous! Great watch!
