Lovely, lovely movie. Willa steals the movie and your heart with her delicate intonation on a difficult subject matter. Movie is a little rough around the edges, but she more than makes up for it. Best part: no wizards and dragons and computer generated car chases and doom and glum.

For a certain type of contemplative teen girl, its sensitive handling of heavy material will surely prove affecting, though the picture sometimes veers too far to the sleepy end of low-key. Full Review

There are no surprises among the characters — depressed mom (Amy Jo Johnson), controlling aunt (Cynthia Stevenson), new boyfriend (Tatanka Means) — but the cast is strong enough to build on familiar elements. Full Review
Eric Kohn
Directed by Blume's son Lawrence, this gentle drama based on Blume's 1981 novel works surprisingly well considering the numerous trappings of the material, while demonstrating exactly why it's so difficult to bring Blume's work to the screen. Full Review

Time has robbed Blume’s subjects of shock value, but her perceptiveness hasn’t dimmed. The movie’s sincerity carries it along, and makes this story endearing despite its filmmaking clichés. Full Review

Best to forget the movie version exists and keep your happy childhood memories intact. Full Review
