nice acting
20 January 2019 | by ops-52535See all my reviews

This is not a funny film, its not even romantic, but the acting by jessica barden are memorable and aspiring. she will be 27 this year, but has the ubelievable look of an innocent 14 yrs old girl, but at the same time could have been man hating 30 year old too. her acting really wins the contest of driving this film to a 7.

its all about romance, the lack of it, the wish for it, the quest for it, and to live with it. its a hard days night all the way through, as she tries to be seen, but at the same time trying to be a rough tough individualistic female, that means trouble and headbanging against the wall., though it ends surprisingly well ,the travel has been hard. i think a lot of girls from 13-30 will find recognition and a-ha moments , and even a good share of boys will be able to identify oneself with the main character.

im impressed by the technical product carly stone has put together, and what amazes me most is the multipel locations and settings that has been used making this flick. if i say at least 50 then im not overestimating. also the make up department shall have gratitude for making ms barden so rich and at the same time so plain and simple....

the story though might feel a bit superficial and shallow for an old grumpy man like me. will i recommend it, of course.....
