Ratings & Reviews

  • The film is upbeat, wholesome, chirpy, positive, sunny, cheerful, optimistic and squeaky-clean. It bears so little resemblance to the more complicated worlds of many members of its target audience (girls 4 to 11) that it may work as pure escapism. show more

  • A wholesome little drama aimed at the pre- and early-teen crowd. show more

  • It's a beguiling exploration of friendship, trust, truth, insecurity and, yes, secrets. show more
