Good Teen Movie
9 October 2016 | by destinylives52See all my reviews

Better than I expected, "Be Somebody" is about a famous pop singer (played by Matthew Espinosa) who "escapes" his mom/manager and assorted handlers for a few days and lives the life of a regular teenager in a small town. He meets a hardworking, talented, down to earth girl (played by Sarah Jeffery); and despite their lives being complete opposites, they hit it off and become friends quickly. Of course, there is more than a friendly spark between them; but he cannot stay in her world and she cannot be in his world. If a fine balance isn't met, then their budding romance is doomed from the start. "Be Somebody" is not the typical teen movie. Yes, it has a few clichés; but it also leans toward the melodramatic and serious side, and most of the scenes involve just Espinosa and Jeffery. This is a movie older teens will appreciate and find refreshing, I think. My most memorable, movie moment of "Be Somebody" is the scene when Jeffery lets Espinosa in her car so he can avoid a few teen girls who are chasing him. Completely unbelievable, as she has no idea who he is; and therefore is letting a stranger in her car at night. Still, it was a cute scene.
