I feel the plot and characters were interesting and had depth. It was an interesting perspective on the very difficult age girls go through as well as the decisions and impulses that get acted upon. My biggest issue with the film was that there could have been a whole lot more family back story and interaction because it seemed the set up for interesting situations was there, but the plot did not follow through.
