Indy lives with her aunt and uncle and believes her life is fine until an accident brings a new guy into the picture. Bryant Bailey is not Indy's type - she's never been into guys like him. But then again, she's never really known anyone so stubborn and caring that can also help her discover who she is and what she's worth. A modern retelling of Cinderella, based on the novel by Jenni James. This unique film captures the beauty of awkward teen love, as well as poignant realities of emotional abuse. You will laugh and cry with Indy as she traverses this incredible journey to freedom and finding out what family and love really means. Written by screenwriter/author Jenni James

(at around 40 mins) Bryant walks up to Indy who is sitting by the flower bed pulling weeds. His hands are empty. He starts to sit down on the ground across from her and he has a weeding tool in his hand before he even finishes sitting. A minute later, Indy reaches out and takes the weeding tool away from him and puts it on the ground near her. Then Bryant is fiddling with the weeding tool again but never reached over to pick it up.

Broad Acting, but a Great Message
6 April 2018 | by dlpoole-87244See all my reviews

We enjoyed it in spite of the terribly broad acting, particularly of the aunt and uncle. The reality is much grittier, but the emotional abuse suffered by the title character is not as rare as you might think. 'Want to be the hero yourself? ...then consider serving as a CASA. Just Google it.
