School scenes filmed at Oldham County High School in Buckner, KY. See more »
Great message, but leads strain credulity.
I enjoyed yet another strong performance by Laura Wiggins ("Starving In Suburbia", "The Cheating Pact", "Cradle Swapping"), and that of Nicky Whelan, whom I hope to be seeing in many more LIfetime prodcutions.
That said. Laura is only seven years younger than Nicky in real life. If Laura was the director's choice to play Maddie, then maybe someone older should have been selected to play Gwen. Nicky was great, don't get me wrong. But a little more age gap between mother and daughter, even if it is on-screen, would have been nice. Jennie Garth would have been a fine match (16 years older than Laura).
Same with if Nicky were the first choice to play Gwen. Someone in their 20s as Maddie would have been more appropriate. Peyton List from Disney Channel comes to mind.
Bottom line: great movie, just sometimes hard to forget two of the leads were much closer in age to being sisters than mother and daughter.
