Fell asleep.
4 March 2021 | by AmakoaAkanaSee all my reviews

I usually love this genre of coming of age movie, but this film put me to sleep, so I missed half of it. There was way too much moralizing by the adult actors, especially the "Grandpa" and I never did figure out what all the conflict between the adults was all about. or care about it. Maybe that was because I snoozed. Whatever! I didn't like any of them and certainly didn't like their mistreatment of their daughter. I even disliked the dog! One exception to the horrid characters and bad acting was the Black woman, I never figured out what her role was... at first I thought Grandpa's new wife, or girl friend or house keeper or nurse??? She was likeable.

So why give it six stars? Well, mostly because of Luana, played by Peyton Kennedy. I mean, I tuned into this movie as a Coming of Age movie and Luana was an interesting character, understandable, believable in her role. I did care about her and felt bad about her losses. So she gets seven stars and the rest of the film gets one star. Do the math!
