“I usually love this genre of coming of age movie, but this film put me to sleep, so I missed half of it. There was way too much moralizing by the adult actors, especially the u0026quot;Grandpau0026quot; and I never did figure out what all the conflict between the adults was all about. or care about it. Maybe that was because I snoozed. Whatever! I didnu0026#39;t like any of them and certainly didnu0026#39;t like their mistreatment of their daughter. I even disliked the dog! One exception to the horrid characters and bad acting was the Black woman, I never figured out what her role was… at first I thought Grandpau0026#39;s new wife, or girl friend or house keeper or nurse??? She was likeable.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSo why give it six stars? Well, mostly because of Luana, played by Peyton Kennedy. I mean, I tuned into this movie as a Coming of Age movie and Luana was an interesting character, understandable, believable in her role. I did care about her and felt bad about her losses. So she gets seven stars and the rest of the film gets one star. Do the math!”
