    This movie was absolutely fantastic. It was a great cast, I really enjoyed it. The 3 main girls (I only know Emma Watson, I don\'t know the other 2 girls\' names) really go well with each other. It looked like they had a good time. I know Emma hasn\'t done anything big outside of HP yet, but with this movie, it shows she has the acting chops to succeed quite fairly in Hollywood. She isn\'t at all up to Angelina Jolie or Audrey Hepburn or Kate Winslet\'s acting abilities (I\'m saying that as a fair and truthful fan), but she\'s gotten a whold lot better with time, and she\'ll only continue to get better.

    I heard about this movie because I love the HP films (Emma Watson plays Pauline) and I did not think the B.B.C. would release this in the U.S., I never saw one trailer for it. I was elated to discover it was coming out two days before it did! It's a wonderful story definitely a girls only movie. The PG rating for smoking is for some adults who smoke some cigarettes. Very cute movie and the acting is superb by all parties! Richard Griffiths is hilarious. Emma Watson of course is brilliant when she recites lines form Puck in a Midsummer Night's Dream. Yasmin Paige is every girl at some time in her life. The rest of the cast was sensational! I plan to buy it in September when it is released.
