Excellent Movie

I love this movie, but I disfavor the stepfather's personality. I disfavor strict people who keep people from doing that they love to do. I does not make sense to be strict on someone on does good things. Just because he loss his wife in a car accident, it does not give him the right to keep his stepdaughter from driving. I am avery strict and tough person than her stepfather because I am not strict and tough on negative people who do bad things. I believe she should have lived with her aunt or someone who allow her to do what she wants to do like dance or help out in the community. No children will respect house rules unless they agree to it. Stop being tough on good children or do not have children. I do not have a problem straightening up even tough person in this world.
